    Ring compressing???

    Anyone got any tricks to getting the rings and pistons back into the cylinders? Ive tried a ring compression tool but i can get in there to work it. Ive tried the hand method and Im failing miserably

    Just squeeze them with your fingers.

    Just went Mcgiver on this thing. Took a pop bottle and cut a 2 inch strip. Then compressed with fingers and slid the stip over the rings and taped. Its not pretty by design or in effect but it worked on one. Ready to go try the next.

    all three are in with my little plastic bottle strip trick.. Love it when a plan comes together.

    Be sure that the ring ends are on each side of the little pins, then just lube up with 2 stroke oil and squeeze together with your fingers. Presto !!!
