Not sure they can make all pistons, but EGGE makes some custom pistons for really old engines.

I spoke with Dan Karpel @ Crank Machine service a few years ago about pistons for a UC after he did a crank for me and he had a source.  He suggested making a fiberglass resin cast of the head chamber to give most accurate shape for best dome configuration.  Life has gotten in the way and i have yet to do it. Id be interested in doubling your order depending on what you go with, if you decide to roll with it.  I guess we have talked this over James,  but dont remember if i ever got you the contact info

Hey Cal, I am sending one of my pistons to extreme tractor parts-Ray.
I ended up having my sleeves bored .030 over. I am having  .500 added to 
compression ht. This will be 7-1 CR and the piston will be  .060 below the 
spark plug hole so it wont require any features on top. Calculates show hp
around 65. Plenty for me, I am not competing just want enough that it never
powers out on the fun pulls and I can still hand crank it-- LOL.

I am only guessing but with your stroke, it would push the piston up enough to
gain a lot more compression plus CI. You could buy new sleeves and rings and 
run stock pistons.??

  yeah i have to run short bbc style piston just to keep the rings in the sleeve with the stroke and custom rods i have.  Was going to run 4.625 bore as can be done without machine work on block, so will be 445 cubes if i ever get it done.  being a UM engine im in uncharted territory but i dont really have the finances to be a guinea pig lol.   if im going to do something i just as well make it a worth while though....
