well!! 71 views of my request but not one answer!! so many people are interested in the answer, but it would appear that no one has this crucial information! does our technical officer have no input into our site?, how else can I find out??? David

David, After a few happy days searching my sheds etc i found a 1948 Hepolite piston catalogue.
The information for a 600 S6 1930 to 1946 is as follows.
Metal: Aluminium

Hope this is of some use, sorry it has taken so long. Regards, Colin.

For Tobias
I have read in your mail that you have some parts for AERO( half engine )  . I am looking for a crankshaft for an AERO 600 from 1936  Do you have that ?
