The pins are held in with a wire lock. We were careful to make sure the lock was seated by inserting one end of the lock into the groove and spiraling the lock into place. Do not squeeze the lock to install it; it will permanently deform. We prefer to build piston/rod combinations as pairs. The beveled edge of each rod faces the crank cheek, and the flat sides of the rods face each other on each rod journal.
