Story is he's a bought a Poley T5 that we've known all of the ownership since new. He's bought it last year after 20 years of badgering the last couple of owners to part with it. It's now a little tired and not running quite as well as we know it can. Pretty sure it needs a new set of rings but hopefully it's just that and not a hone and /or a new piston.
From memory they used a Suzuki TS 185 piston kit, can anyone confirm this and if not then what was the piston used? I know it was Suzuki of some description.

I'm just doing a Suzuki smallblock Lambretta engine and if this helps the std TS185 has a compression height of 32mm and is 64mm bore with a 16mm gudgeon pin. T5 little end is also 16mm (?) so you are probably right. Although I can recall people using Yamaha pistons as well but this could be the fumes playing tricks with me
spoke to a guy on facebooger tother day who has a MB170 , he was certain it was a suzuki piston but couldnt remember which one .an in norries book he states his conversion piston for a lined t5 barrel is also suzuki ,but not which one . H
