PMC Piston Installtion Plates
This one tool every Harley mechanic should have these in his tool box!
We have designed these plates to make it an easy job of putting the pistons with the rings on into the cylinders. For anyone who has done this they know it can test your patience the best of times. Keeping the piston in line with the cylinder bore while sliding the cylinder down over the piston is important. With our newest tool you can slide the cylinder down with ease without the use of wood or plastics under the piston. Just get yourself ready with the rings compressed, and work the piston down until it sits square on the plate. Then tap the cylinder down over the piston. Done! Our plates are manufactured in two seperate pieces designed to make for easy installaton and removal
Piston Plates for Evolution Engines
(Proto type plates used for demo)
Step 1. Place the PMC Plate on the motor and fit it over the studs. Install piston on rod.
Step 2: Place the rings on the piston and then set it square onto the plate
Step 3: Put your ring compressor around the piston and rings.
Step 4: Slide your cylinder down onto the top of the piston and line everything up nice and square and centered. With the cylinder partially started down onto the piston....Tap the cylinder down onto the piston until the cylinder bottoms out on the ring compressor.
Step 5: Once you are there then lift the cylinder, and piston, up together to allow room to remove the ring compressor and plate.
Step 6: Making sure the piston is centered into the case hole, finish sliding the cylinder down into place. You are done!
