Ring compresser

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi guys I was looking at an old magizine and seen a neat way to compress a ring to put the piston in a model engine . Use a nylon tye strap to compress the ring then push in to the cylinder. Neat solution for a tricky problem.

That's a neat way to do it. I have always just used my fingernails, I must be lucky because I haven't broken a ring yet. Then again on a 100cc this may be hard!
