Piston rings are gone over in detail by the Moss Motors Tech department. We
discuss which way is up and what you do with the odd marking. How to
measure ring land gap for a proper fit and installation.
Cylinder Bore - An Explanation of How To Measure
The Moss Motors tech department is back and showing you how to measure your
cylinders for bore size and roundness. You will need to compare your
finding to a factory workshop manual to determine if your cylinder and
pistons are within acceptable gap tolerance.

Some hints, tricks and other things you should know at piston replacement:
Things to consider when installing an aftermarket Piston, is that you very
carefully to make sure it is identical with the piston as it is ordered in
the dimensions of the piston pin, both upwards and downwards, this so that
it can not turn the crank, push or hit the top when it rotates in the
Compare with your old piston before installation.
One must also carefully check every holes on the piston rings ports so that
they do not go over any channel in the cylinder, then the chances are that
the ruling in this case, sticking and breakage, leading to the cutting
cylinder. The arrow on the piston is at assembly towards the Exhaust port.
Choosing the piston:
B-piston recommend it for all used cylinders.
A piston for new cylinders or cylinders with new nicasil.
A B piston is slightly larger than an A piston in order to compensate for
wear. C piston is greater than B-piston etc..
Here you can see when I change the cylinder

How To Check Piston Ring End Gap.MP4
Piston ring end gap is and important measurement to verify during engine
assembly. Do this to ensure that the ring ends won't butt during engine
operation and damage the cylinders. Also keeps cylinder pressures more
consistent from bore to bore which means better effiiciency and power.
Installing The Pistons
Installing the pistons in my 5.4l for my F150. I used a Sealed Power ring
and piston set from Napa. I wanted to go with forged, but my engine guy
told me that in a street/strip block, forged pistons will actually
deteriorate the block faster and
are much noisier.
DIO Piston Install TIPS
These are some tips on installing or taking off your two stroke pistons
from the crankshaft. Always keep the parts clean and take your time and do
the job right. Remember that the piston always goes on with the arrow on
the piston crown, pointed towards the Exhaust port. Put your rings back on or take
them off with a piston ring expander. Rings are very brittle and can snap
in half, very easily. Line the rings up with the single ring pin in each
slot. Oil the rings and cylinder walls with two stroker oil and carefully
lower the cylinder onto the piston. Use a new base gasket , scraping off
the old one. When changing or working with the cylinder off, stuff the
crankcase around the crank rod to stop foreign debris from entering and
fallin in the crank well. Use a new head gasket every time and torque the
head bolts in a cross-hatch pattern to avoid warping the aluminum head.
Take your spark plug and screw it into the head before installing to make
sure the plug sits flush with the top of the cylinder head chamber.
How To: File Piston Ring End-Gaps
In this video, I show you how to file down the piston ring gaps for your
engine. Its something that is definitely do-able on your own with some
patience, and its a pretty useful skill if you like re-building motors.
