    You have a few options. I would first call Silv-o-Lite. They made the pistons originally long ago. They are the only current manufacturer of Willys / Continental L134 pistons. They are now owned by UEM. https://uempistons.com/

    If you cant find them, Ross Racing Pistons will make anything you want. They can make you a forged version, which will be much better than the cast originals. I have used Ross custom made pistons in a few different applications (Auto and Small engine) where no piston or, the piston type I wanted wasn't available. I find them very reasonable for custom pistons. Do you have an old piston to send them? https://www.rosspistons.com/
