My engine project had stalled because I didn’t have a piston ring compressor. I’ve been staring at this beautiful SR20DET with CP Pistons and Eagle Rods, begging to be put together, but haven’t been able to do it because my dad said he had a piston ring compressor, but it was a piece of crap.
So I bought one, same result. $4.53 later from VW Paradise in San Marcos, BAM! I have a great little piston compressor that worked fantastic. We worked for about an hour, it’s my first motor assembly ever, and got the four pistons installed. The motor looks GREAT and I can’t wait to get the short block completed and move to the head. This motor should be a great upgrade for my Datsun Roadster.
