I have a 1970 400 and i was looking at my pistons and the number 227P is stamped on top but nothing else. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this number is and if it is oversized. I am sure that if it is oversized that number is also stamped on the top, but i can find no part number or manufacture info to match this number. Trying to get an idea on how long these have been in the engine. Just curious and looking for some help to ease my mind.
If they're TRW pistons, that number is telling you that they're forged. (TRW's that begin with '2' are forged, '3' is cast). If you're positive there's nothing else stamped into the tops then they're probably standard bore size.
