OK guys I broke down and pulled the wrist pin out and this is what I found
The hole on one side of the piston is smaller on the outside than on the inside so the
pin will only go in the piston one way and no clip on the other side only the Teflon pad to hold it in
I see your point Floyd but this is the only 40size piston they make but they use the same pin in other engines That is why they include clips in replacement pins
I guess after taking it apart that far I shouldn't have been afraid to go that little bit further
So now I know everything is OK I will put it all back together and leave off the mixture stops Thanks everyone
Allan

Re: Teflon pad on wrist pin

No it would be either a Teflon button or a C clip ; not both to be used. Takes a bit more effort or another step to machine a grove for the clip.

Re: Teflon pad on wrist pin

I have one that might fit. I have a set of hole punches that you strike with a hammer and have made several out of sheet nylon. What is the outside diameter of the wrist pin?

Re: Teflon pad on wrist pin

Don't think I would use nylon as that could melt as it gets pretty hot. That is why they use Teflon. Plus the Teflon is usually shaped so that part of it fits inside the hollow wrist pin.

Re: Teflon pad on wrist pin

In a pinch you can use weedwacker string. It is .08" or 2mm which is a common size. Just take a soldering iron and mushroom the end. It takes a bit of practise, and you may have to do a few before you get a good one.

Never thought of that Alan, that's a good idea.
