Note

Lock ring is expanded just enough to go over end of pin. Other means of installing may over-expand ring and possibly crack it. Make sure ring groove is clean and that ring seats firmly in groove.

1972 and earlier models: 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.
