Default OS SPEED piston pin retainer clip question

Hey folks,

Just replaced my con rod in the OS Speed engine and I was wondering if there is a perticular way to re-install the piston pin retainer clip (opening facing up or down or dont matter)
thx
Chris

Typically the circlip gap should be positioned either at the top or the bottom and try to avoid positioning it to either side. If positioned to the side inertia from the clip/piston reciprocating up and down can allow the clip to compess and pop out. After operation these things end up all over the place so no real problem.
