Default Piston ring compressor and piston holder

My favourite cylinder installing rig: a wooden spacer with slot to hold piston steady as I slide the cylinders on. And a Volkswagen "krinkle cut" ring compressor that comes apart after the cylinder is on. The crinkle cuts stop it jamming up in between the piston and cylinder. Easy peasy. Also, use plenty of oil in the rings, piston and cylinder to help it all slide on.


Thats just an old piston used to set up for pick so is way too dirty for assembly.[/QUOTE]
