    doing a piston swap and can't find no where where i can get the driver set for cheap. anything around 100 is nice. does anyone know the website/store/etc where i can get this item. i've tried snap-on but with no luck. maybe someone else might know a few more tricks as to what goes into the search. thanks!

    It is called a mallat. you have to heat the pistons up so that they expand, and put the pins in and let the piston cool. I was able to do this all by hand as the piston expanded enough to do this, however I am told that is a rare experience. Personally if you have not done this before I would have a machine shop do it for you, or have someone who has done a honda pistons help you out.

    there's no need to heat up the piston. like i said the piston pin will glide on it. why would you need to heat up the piston. it's the rod that the pins have to be pressed into. so.....anyone have any idea where to get the driver kit.

    i'm a serious do-it-yourselfer. so i don't really want to go to the shop unless there's absolutely no other option.

    you're going to need the following parts from honda:

    Piston Pin Driver Head- #07973-PE00320
    Piston Pin Driver Shaft- #07973-PE00310
    Pilot Collar- #07LAF-PR30100
    Piston Pin Base Insert- #07GAF-PH60300
    Piston Base Head- #07HAF-PL20102
    Piston Base- #07973-6570500

    Those are the part numbers honda lists, i'm sure they're not all necessary, but even so, it's gonna be a bit more expensive to DIY then it would be to just take it to a shop- your call

    yeah, but this won't be my only build. if it's a reasonable amount like around 100 or so for the set then i'll get it but if it's rediculously expensive then forget it.
