    Film A Sweet Sickness (Flathead V8 Ford )

    I watched the film A sweet sickness the other night very interesting
    I was trying to keep focussed on the young guy who was installing the piston rings as he was talking, he was so quick at installing them I was trying to watch his technique
    I could not see him opening the rings and slipping them over the pistons, one second he had the ring in his hand next second it was on, literally the blink of the eye

    Most likely thumb nails in the gap, pull apart, drop them over the piston, quick as a flash and smooth a silk.

    Not me but I've seen other old hands do it on a few occasions.
    Whirrr whirrr chuff chuff de chuff........chuff......BRUMMMM!

    Watched it again last night he fed the rings in starting at one end and slipped them around as opposed to opening them and slipping over , very quick and smooth

    I tried that when I was rebuilding a two strike outboard motor, it s a good way of breaking piston rings!
    (Must be the difference between proper Dearborn steel and cheap Chinese ****e steel)
