    OK sl750 hole in piston

    So I am finally at it! Hole in the #3 piston. So I have read enough here to know what needs to be done but now I have questions. Do the rod ends have a hole in them stock? And I have the wrist pin keeper on the inside toward #2 stuck. Any help in getting that little Bast$$$ out. Oh and I need the info for the triple fuel pump and piston kit vendors again.

    Thanks

    Leave that cir clip in place, remove the other side and push the pin out the side you removed the cir clip.

    If the wrist pin is pressed against the circlip, force it the other way a touch. Then use a pick to pry the circlip out.

    Well I tried to push it out to the back but no dice. I will pull the center jug to get more room tonight. By the way, does the top of the rod have a hole in it from the factory? Thanks for the wisdom.

    yes, that allows oil to flow into and around the wrist bearings.

    I had the same problem with my piston. I had to remove the middle jug to get the wrist pin out of the PTO piston. It was so stuck I had to use a deep socket and gently tap it out.

    Please don't hammer on the wrist pins. You'll be damaging the con. rod bearings. (side to side play)

    Instead, use a pair of LARGE channel locks to push the wrist pin out with a socket.

    NOTE: only do this if the piston is trash!!!!
