Gudgeon pin tip

Gudgeon pin tip

I have always used the tools to extract the gudgeon pins, but when assembling using aluminium pistons, from motorcycles to large diesels, have immersed the pistons for two or three minutes in very hot water. Meanwhile, the gudgeon pins are kept as cold as possible and then they slide in easily. Put one circlip in the opposite side to which you are entering the pin and you know it won’t go too far. Just thought it may be of interest.
