Clean lock ring groove and install lock ring on end of pin that is not slotted if it was removed. Start slotted end of pin into piston boss from left side and drive through in the same manner in which pin was removed.

If the piston is heated in boiling water, the pin may be inserted into piston as a slip fit.
