Wristpin in engine

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm cleaning/re-assembling Shorty's Kyosho GS .21 engine, and there doesn't seem to be anything to hold the wristpin in the piston. Most engines have a clip that goes in here, but there isn't one here and it doesn't have a spot for one. However VEN said that on GS .15 engines there is a Teflon pin that goes in it, but I can't find one. Can anyone with experience with these things give some advice?

its not a pin

It is like a teflon plug that goes in the wristpin hole.
should probably be one in each side.

cuz it wont run long b4 it scars up the sleeve.
