Now I wouldn't bother with the adaptor on the leather sealed piston to convert to a synthetic seal for three good reasons.

Here's the three strokes and weights of the three setups :-
Factory Synthetic sealed piston ------------- 69mm stroke - piston weight 264g
Factory Leather sealed piston --------------- 65mm stroke - piston weight 294g
Leather sealed piston adapted to synthetic - 61mm stroke - piston weight 321g
Saying all that I do like to start off with the old leather sealed piston as you can machine the nose back easily to end up with a lightened piston with a 71mm stroke.
All the best Mick
