Ahhh , that really is the pits. Depending on your budget or urgency and level of comfort in using either a used piston or new ones, I think we can help. I could do the same for you as I have done for Lincolntbird. I could order from my Subie dealer here in North America a set of Pistons for a Subaru Justy EF10 that dimensionally are exactly the same and ship them to you when they arrive. then you would have to modify the valve notches with a small grinder and then you would have a pair of brand new pistons. Or possibly 1 used piston could come your way to get you over this hurdle.

It is spelled REX not WRX it is not a wannabee or pretender because REX means KING

Hi sikari, if you are happy to use a good second hand piston I could have a look through my spare engines and see what I can find. I should be able to find a couple of pistons out of 3 engines. If you want to go that way then you can have them for the cost of the postage. Love all the pics and write ups. You have put me to shame. I will also look into that seal you need and do you have a water pump kit? I have a spare I could sell you if you haven't got one. Cheers....lincolntbird.

I've located one from a guy that's wrecking an 84 sherpa, as long as he gets off his backside (I've been at him for over a week now to send the bloody thing) I hope to have a good condition used one shortly.
I actually found two people in Oz with some, but the first said "sure thing too easy" then three days later hadn't got back to me with payment details so when I followed up he just replied "all sherpas and parts sold". What a little shizen.
If that falls through I may be very tempted to take you up on your offer, Justyfied. Although with my daily developing more oil leaks (which require engine removal to repair) getting the Sherpa on the road is more important than ever.
I haven't lost my mind... it's backed up on tape somewhere
