Because i nore anyone who is helping me..listens what i have to say.. and mess up my ****.. tonight we were installing the piston rings on the piston.. and my ******* friend who thinks he knows everything.. ****s up.. and breaks one.. so then i go down to the local auto parts store.. and had tp BUY a WHOLE DARN SET of piston rings when all i needed was 1 damn ring..

then it turns out that when we get the rings compressed and try to get them into the block.. it stops half way.. and they try to force it into the block.. when i say.. dont were just gonna mess something up.. then it turns out thers a few scratches on my crank kuz of them NOT LISTENING TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY..

there trying to say that them damn scratches arent bad.. ****.. they look bad.. scratches arent supposed to be where the crank meets the piston rod..

If it didnt come out of there damn pocket.. they dont care if they **** something up..

Sorry just had to vent..!..

BAD NIGHT

tomorrow im gonna call the machine shop and see if they can install the rest of it for me.. and they can just keep the block till i pay an arm and a leg in payments which wont be for a while because im loosing my job in like 2 weeks... because there slow and in debt

Grab your friend, with with one hand and hold on to his bottom jaw like a fish while you build all the anger energy you can dredge from the past life and tell him you don't want him touching you stuff any more. If he doesn't listen, or even looks like he's not listening, then gouge you thumb into his eye. The repeat until he begins to beg for your mercy. Let go of his bottom jaw and immediately punch him in the throat, If you can't breath then you can't fight back. If he try's to run, then cut the tendon's in the back of he's knees with a shop knife. If he still doesn't get it, Drill holes through his front teeth exposing the nerves and thread piano wire through them till you you have enough to tie it off to something, then shove him into a box and feed him one peanut butter and jelly sandwich per day until you can arrange all you COOL friends to come over and poke him with sticks till he cry's. After that, Just tell him not to come over any more. Tearing up your stuff isn't very cool.

You probably wouldn't have had that problem if you would have gapped your rings in the cylinders before installing the pistons into the block. I had a friend who destroyed a $5000 motor about 10 years ago because he didn't check the gap on his rings before installing them. It's a very simple process to check them for gap and gap them if necessary.


Just chalk it up as part of the learning process. It happens.

I doubt that this will help, but I'll give you a little run down on piston installs. And I'm sure that someone will have some edits to what I write & this is probably the wrong forum also.

1. Install rings on Pistons.
2. I like to orient the gaps on the rings about 180 degrees apart so all the gaps aren't lined up in a row.
3. Put ring compressor on piston.
4. It doesn't hurt to take some old rubber tubing and put it on the rod bolts so that they don't scratch your bores or your crank.
5. Make sure that the rods are oriented in the right direction.
6. Put Piston in block, take wooden hammer handle and tap piston into cylinder. When the piston is all the way into the bore the ring compressor will come free.

JohnsonGrass and Jamnut

speak with wisdom beyond their years.
do what they said.
and don't forget the good old "swift kick to the nuts". that maneuver can be awfully persuasive if properly administered.
