2100 piston husqvarna

I know about the thin ring and the thick ring oem pistons. Read where you was wanting a aftermarket by meteor even in thick ring would be OK.

Whats wrong with these Episan 2100 pistons?  Out of stock right now it shows.    http://www.dlastore.com/e_store/piston-kit-fit-husqvarna-298-1100-cd-2100-2100-cd-2101-jungle-type-56mm.html

I have no experience with Episan or VEC pistons.  Haven't seen 2100 Episan pistons in stock for a while either.  The AM slugs I've seen on ebay have been no-name (maybe VEC)?  I won't risk my cylinder on a piston I know nothing about.  Have you used Episan and/or VEC pistons?

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

i have used plenty of the VEC pistons with good results. heavier in most cases that i have weighed them but otherwise a useable piston that has yet to fail on me. i even have a few test mules out that i used the supplied rings.  I started using them before i knew any  better and since i had no problems with them i have continued using them

Thanks for the input on VEC pistons.  Were all the measurements in spec?

first couple dozen i used i have no idea. I never checked. Again i wasnt all that well informed and was jsut learning. Last couple years i havent used near as many( switched to meteor) but they have all been in spec as best as you can measure with calipers. wrist pin has always slid right through with no binding and circle clip grooves have always been nice. They are not OEM or meteor quality but i would never hesitate to use them in a stock saw. Worst offense that i have found is leftover casting flash on an edge here and there that needs buffed off. Northwood carries them but doesnt label them as VEC in the descriptions. they are labeled as high quality import and usually around $29. Which since the first of the year makes them less appealing since Stihl lowered their prices and Chris started carrying Meteor at great prices.

I have also used Mako pistons which arent bad looking for the money but the circle clip grooves are horrible.
Raisman Platt are horrible too. used 2 of them and both had the ring locating pin drilled all the way through the piston. i called and they said it was normal and they would warranty if a problem came up so i used it. still going strong but i wont use another.

Thank you for your insight from your experiences with the VEC pistons.  Makes me feel more comfortable about trying one with one of my cylinders.

I'm hoping somebody can share their observations and opinions of Episan pistons too.

I would use an Episan over a VEC.

Really the best piston to use in a 2100 if you can machine the cylinder base is a 394 or 395 piston.
