    p jones,
    these photos are from an eBay restorer d-s_seller, they look right to me (but I'm not a 1500 owner).

    See here for more info and photos you cann zoom in on. - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264719418524

    HTH, if not 1500 owners and/or those that know will be along.

    Bill I have an unused set of flat top Powermax pistons, fully floating pins with circlips. Pin size is 0.825.
