Here's a closer picture of the piston that I took at the Alexander show this year. There wasn't anybody around then to ask what it came from, so I'm glad to find out some info on it.
Thanks PT

I was just showing a friend here at work the pictures of this piston. He said that would make an AWESOME BBQ SMOKER!!!
I think it would too! But it might take a while to get the oily diesel taste off the food.
