View Full Version : One more question on pistons???

05-17-2001, 01:23 AM
Hey guys, after getting my new pistons and rods for my Ka, exactly how are they installed? My friend asked me if they were pressed on. I was not aware that there was different ways they were installed. I'd like to do the work myself but I think the job is for somenody proffesional. can you help me out?

I'm with Racetech USA in Orlando. If you need someone to build the engine, let me know. I've built quite a few Nissan engine ranging from KAs, SRs, CAs, RBs, and VGs.

the pistons are floating pistons not pressed in. They have a snap clip holding them in.

Hey Mizark,

How much would I be lookin at for you to install new rods, pistons, bearings, and the like. I'm avoiding a complete engine rebuild, I just want to strengthen the motor with lower comp. pistons to handle roughly 300~325 hp at the wheels.
