    so you're using an aftermarket piston and stock rods? stock rods and pistons are press fit where as aftermarket setups are almost always floating pins with locking clips. are you sure the pistons you have are meant for use with stock rods? if they are then thats fine, but they will need to be press fit into place.

    if they are a press fit piston pretty much the only way youll get them on is heat
