Would an Imola piston not work?

I've a small block 198 phbh 30, I fitted an lth reed valve but didn't cut port holes, just doing a winter rebuild and was thinking of changing the piston to the Imola will it fit the 198

No, pretty sure the 198 Mugello uses a 66mm piston, the Imola is 64mm.
RB20, 66mm piston, may work but needs a 116 rodded crank plus you'd need to check piston crown to cylinder head profiles.

To do the reed conversion on the 198 you Can use a 200 monza piston.
