I dont have a pic, but the pistons on my au 175 v8 are just a flat top piston with the four half moon cutouts opposite each other(i dont know why there is four half moons on my pistons when they come with 2 valve heads).
Could these pistons be old style dished 302 windsor pistons with the cutouts made in them like the newer style injected pistons have?

Your pistons seem to have had a dish machined into them, maybe to lower comp, but i dont think they are dished pistons with cutouts like i said previously.

They have four valve reliefs so they can be used on either side of the engine when it is built,that's all.
