Hi guys, got a problem. I got a new piston/sleeve/pin for my engine but when i put it together i noticed that there is still no ring that goes into the piston to hold the wristpin in it. There looks like there is a grove in the piston where the pin is going in but there is no ring, but, the wrist pin has a a small plastil pin that pops into it and the guys at the hobby shop said that that will hold the wristpin in place and nothing else is needed, on the exploded view of the engine, it also shows nothing that looks like an oring that goes inside the piston, my dad is mad cause i put the engine together and he thinks that the wrist pin won't hold but i think that if the hobby shop said its ok and nothing shows on the exploded view than why worry. he just doesnt want me to spend 40 buks on another piston sleeve set. HELP!!!?

try and push it out, if it doesn't pop out it's probibly fine, if it does you may have a problem. Maybe the old one was just worn out, thats why it popped out
