    Exclamation 250X ULTRA cylinder install

    Hi,

    Anybody can tell me how he install the cylinder inside the piston ?
    I use tight cable and it not work I made tool from thin metal and also, It is not work I use my finger one piston get inside and other one ring come down from there grove because the person with me can't align it. One time I install all of them but after that one of piston stuck inside the cylinder and I see the one of Oil Ring Steel Rails damage because it get out from it place and I install the cylinder by force.

    What can I do now?


    thank you

    The pistons go in from the bottom.

    And use a piston ring compressor if available. Wide zip ties can also work to hold the rings in.

    Yes, I know that it go in from the bottom and when I use the zip ties I put each one on the ring and when I put the cylinder the zip tie slide down and the rings open again.


    thank you

    In that case get someone to help you. One person to slide the piston in and the other to keep the ties in place. Otherwise, a ring compressor would be ideal. I've done it using both methods and it is doable - patience when using the zip tie method and a second set of hands for sure.

    It's far easier to install the pistons inside the cylinders.

    You can also use large hose clamps. Install them tight, then loosen them just enough to allow them to slide over the rings.
