Pistons and Cylinders

- Page 1


Piston and cylinders are a crucial part of rebuilding an engine. You will need new pistons any time you have the cylinders over bored. FYI: Pistons are a component of a reciprocating engine. The pistons ride up and down in the cylinders and are sealed tight by the piston rings. The purpose of the piston is to transfer the force from the expanding gas in the combustion camber to the crankshaft via the connecting rod. The tolerances for pistons are very precise and pistons should always be carefully inspected and measured when rebuilding an engine.

Piston Rings

Piston rings purpose is to seal the gap between the cylinder wall and piston. Piston rings wear over time and the rings should always be carefully inspected, measured or replaced when rebuilding an engine.

Connecting Rods and Hardware

The connecting rods connect the piston to the crankshaft. The primary purpose is to transfer the force from the piston to the crankshaft. The rods work under extreme forces and should always be sent out for professional inspection when rebuilding an engine.
