Recommended Posts

what piston ring compressor works best on a four stroke ? the rod is so short the one i have is to wide to get the cylinder on.

Or dont be a child and do it by hand which takes 2 seconds on a 4 stroke with only 1 compression ring.

If your cylinder has clearance notches at the bottom/sides, you can run the piston into the bore on the bench, then set the cylinder on the cases on a pair of wood blocks, then install the wrist pin.

Good to know!! On a single I always used my fingers but it can be a bizzo.....I'll have to try that sometime.

I love this forum. I'm here primarily to learn, and add a kernal or two here and there if I can. :smirk:
