Pistons were alos bushed to alter them from long stroke to short stroke and vice versa. Putting larger pins in is an option but there is the issue of supply, and going too far over makes the pin heavier which is bad.
Generally if the pistons have clean clip grooves I use clips as a preference over brass pads. Brass pads are okay if the pins are a nice tight fit in the piston but they can walk around in use and wear a groove in the cylinder wall.
If you are doing a full engine strip just be careful how you knock the cranks out of the flywheel as eay to strip theads or bring the cups out too…
