Do not force the piston into the liner. Use ex-
tra care during this loading operation to pre-
vent ring breakage.
(h) Remove theconnecting rod bearing cap and
ring compressor and push the piston down into the
liner until the compression rings pass the liner ports.
(z) After the piston and connecting rod assembly
have been installed in the liner, install the entire as-
sembly as follows:
1. Make sure the seal ring groove in the
cylinder block is clean. Then install a new seal ring.
2 . Apply a hydrogenated vegetable type
shortening or a permanent type antifreeze solution to
the inner surface of the seal ring.
3. If any of the pistons and liners are already
in the engine, use hold-down clamps (fig. 3-144) to re-
tain the liners in place when the crankshaft is rotated.
