Ok, I'm still trying to find out what pistons these are:





the engine is a 1968 camaro 327

the pison is 4.000" in diameter, the top ring is approximately .225" down from the top and the compression height is about 1.670-1.675. the total height of the piston from the top to the bottom of the side is 3.500".

thanks...

The 030 stamp indicates that it is a .030" oversize piston.

I think the "F" means "front" so the stamped side of the piston goes toward the front of the engine. The notch in the piston crown means the same thing.

It looks to me like an ordinary cast aluminum 327 rebuild piston. Nothing special.

I think your block will have to go .040 or .060 over unless the bores are in excellent condition. A machinist can mic out the bores and tell you for sure.
