    Question on piston install????

    I just bought pro x pistons and am in the process of installing them. When i removed the old pistons they had washers in between the rod and the piston. The new pro x ones did not come with this washer. Do I need this washer? Thanks!

    neither my WSM or Pro-X 1200 motors used the washers

    Another quick questions. On the cylinders there is a little part that is highlighted in yellow below. Is this supposed to be loose? When i removed my cylinders they were loose but im not sure what this does or how it is supposed to be set up. Thanks for the help!

    That is the anode to prevent corrosion.. Then will dissolve over time.

    it's a sacrificial anode! ( slows corrosion by sacrificing itself first )
    sometimes you can't get them tight if the screw is seized or the anode is getting thin EDIT! I was typing when speedy above posted

    If you're worried about it, just put some blue threadlocker on the screw
    If you have a new anode it should be tight.
