You can mess up your piston real easy with them. With the zip tie it would break before hurting the piston.

You could also pull the carb and slide a plastic
or hardwood dowel into the crank port. This
would also keep you from putting any preasure
on the con rod and piston.

Piston locker for turbo style motors:
http://www.integy.com/cgi-bin/webc.c...637&p_catid=11

Not sure that I would use one. It's metal on metal inside the motor. Can't be good regardless of what people say.

I use zip ties or even easier just shove the back end of one of your cleaning brushes into the exhaust port. Don't even have to remove the glow plug.

I got one of those Integy turbo piston stops last week and will never use it again. It did not thread in & out smoothly at all.
