BW & GB pistons

I know the BW cylinder has porting different from the GB, but is there a difference in the pistons/rods?

I'm sure they are the same, along with the Babe Bee and Product engines.  I think it was only the Killer Bee that was different, being lightened.  Rods are all the same except for the earlier ones which used the 3 piece piston.

Yep, when you're building a parts box engine, just test fit random pistons and cylinders till you find a pair that dry-fits with a light pinch at the top. And if you're bored, go through your stash and pair up good fitting ones and bag them with lables.
