I just tried to order a set of Speed-Pro forged pistons from my normal supplier for such things, and he informed me that most pistons were unavailable due to the bankrupt status of F-M. I understood the bankruptcy to be due to asbestos litigation/liability and was to have no effect whatsoever on the day to day ops of the company. Has anyone else had problems with piston availability in the TRW/Speed Pro line, or am I being fed one?

Monster ,

I'm a Federal Mogul WD , and I have not had any problems getting part's at all , other than a few thing's that are on national back order . One of the main problems that I know of , is the fact that FM is trying to shut down there business with smaller WD's , and only sell to high volume companies . Perhaps this is what the problem is with your supplier .
