    Domestic 700 Pistons same as Domestic 1050 Pistons?

    I'm pretty sure that the pistons from the 700 domestic (red engines) are the same as the 1050 domestic red pistons right??? I have an extra piston left over from a 700 and wanted to make sure it will fit a 1050?

    as long as they are standard size meaning not bored, yes stock they are the same.

    Yep,as long as they are the same size(stock,or oversized as is the bore),different manufacturers sometimes with weight different.If using a odd ball one always run it in the middle cylinder.

    Same size.
    The only real difference would be with the 3021009 cylinders ( Hurricane and 97 SL & SLTX 1050) and 2200672 pistons ,having a small hole in the side of the piston-with matching hole in cylinder.
    Polaris did have a different metal on older rings.

    Ok, thanks for the help. One other question so with the 3021009 cylinders (For the 97 SL and SLTXS) will pistons from the 700's not work in these or would they be ok??

    The Hurricane is also a 700 and has the 009 cyl's.
    From what I heard,The small hole helped cool the piston (fuel octane concerns)
    As with any engine work,you should check your fuel mixtures.
    But ,Yes they are the same size. I mentioned it incase you want all matching pistons if you are working on a 97.
