I second Rayaracing. I really like the way his equipment works, I bought it! His method prevents over-pinch...

That's not been my experiance. Rayaracing pinch jobs have been nothing less than a like new engine experiance for me.

Same here, thats why I bought the equipment. It works great. 20 bucks and it lasts another couple of gallons. I think thats quite a good deal...


I think for some engines if you buy a new piston and sleeve, you might as well have bought the whole thing. If your piston/sleeve is worn out, what does that say about your conrod, bearings, and your crank?

Its not just piston and sleeve that wears out, the rest of your engine also wears...

A pinch is a good way to extend the life of your engine, all things being equal...
