Slapper, using the pistons down technique, did you ever have any concerns about skirt wear/cylinder wear(egging, piston slap
) in the area where the rings are positioned when in the down position?
I've been down both roads on the leak test but, at the time, didn't give a thought to comparing the results with piston in both positions. Have you done any comparison, Slapper?
Andy, all I've used is a 15+ year old Kohler model.
