    Looking for pistons for a 101 Scout in STD size. Wondering  if sport scout pistons will work ?? We are sleeving the cylinders back to std bore size in my shop. Also looking for a flywheel part # 28-C-24  or even a good set of fly wheels for a 101 Scout. Thanks in advance for any or all replies.

    I would recommend new flywheels instead of the original spoked flywheels. Old original is of course usable and fine in many cases but are a gamble to use even the later version solid flywheels have a tendency to crack at the holes.

    Old original flywheels needs a thorough inspection and control for cracks and the condition of the tapered shaft holes. If the wheels are a mismatched set it is not certain they ever will line up straight in all cases, and even a matched set for best result would need correcting of the holes. And a possible rebalance, at least a checkup.

    George Yarocki is showing the proceedure of honing the holes on a youtube clip by Jeff Alperin, and if you are careful with following that and the recommendations of torque the shafts you should have a fighting chance to avoid flywheels from crack and split.

    Still it is safer to use new cast or steel billett flywheels. There is numerous providers today, Greg Hutchinson, S&S, Truett & Osborn, Breed flathead motors, Bob Nichols and others that makes top of the line flywheels for the Scout engine.

    The total weight of the wheels can differ slightly between variants and it might differ a bit in the character of the engine response. Heavier wheels is fine for riding in a hilly area where you want a bit torquier feel, and light wheels for twisty roads with a lot of up and downshifting. However the difference could be marginal.

    Do the Walker Machine pistons have oil rings? Also I used flywheels from Truett & Osborn Nice flywheels. I wouldn't waist time on using stock flywheels. They crack and are expensive if you find them.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The Walker machine pistons for a 101 scout come with, pins, clips and ring set, but they only sell STD and .010 over size .I am sleeveing the cylinders back to std in my shop since they are out to .060 and scored up bad. I have been told that sport scout pistons will work which is a less expensive option.

    Does any one have current contact info for Greg Hutchinson ? I tried emailing him using this email found on virtual Indian hheroes@ozemail.com.au and received a delivery failure email back. I am interested in his replacement flywheels for a 101 Scout.

    Thanks to all who replied to my original post. Dave Helton

    Thanks for the correct email for Greg I will contact him about his flywheels and also check with Walkers . I am leaning towards the Truett and Osborn flywheels at this point though. Thanks to all who have helped with info during my search for 101 parts .
