Title: piston wrist pin retaining clip
Post by: Stan Paralikis on September 22, 2009, 11:08:10 AM
I've had wrist pins that were pressed in and have had full floating pins installed with C-clips.
My new pistons have these types of clips.  Do I need a special tool or will needle nose pliers work?

Sledge Hammer, 50,000 press and a torch. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)
 
 
Needle nose.  You'll need a set with a beefy nose on them so they don't bend or break.  Channel Lock has a real sweet pair.  The ones from Sears don't cut it
 
Try to work in an area where you can recover the clip if it gets away from you. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
