You can get a whole new barrel and piston here:

Just be warned though, they sent me a piston from an AG175 not a DT175, the AG has smaller windows in the skirt but I enlarged them with a dremel, and the barrels had a bunch of roughness in the castings in the ports that had to be smoothed out, and while I was at it I matched the transfer ports to the cases and knife edged the castings. Ended up being my best 175 to date.

If however you are considering putting this on a DT200 bottom end you are forbidden unless you add a skull headlight.
