Ive had problems with ring compressors like that one.

I have one of those and a cheap one that has a Red handle on it and the ring compressor part is ribbed or wrinkled depending on how you want to describe it. I'll see if I can find a pic.
Anywho, the one posted above can get caught between the piston and the bore if your not careful and good luck getting it off without having to start over..

This is a bad pic but I think you can get what I mean.



Well actually you cant see it all all  :cry:  well the part that goes around the piston is shaped like an accordion.

If you do use the sheetmetal ring compressor, be sure you get the thing very tight and hold it hard against the deck when you push the pistons in or else you'll destroy the ring land and the ring.

I like to use the handle end of a rubber mallet to push them in. I gently pop them in with light blows. A bit of oil on the rings helps too. Also be sure your ring gaps are not all alighned, I usually do 180 degrees out on each level.

I use one like this:



Can be had new at most any auto parts store, just make sure it fits the piston size.

Andrew


that is exactly what I have but it is for larger than 4" bore...and I hate it even for that. It can get lodged in between the bore and the piston if you get it nice and tight and if you don't the rings will hit...of course that is the 4" version and those IIRC had a much more looser tolerance than this .001" diesel.

I like the one Zukgod has, but I don't know where to go to get it. I guess I will check fleebay.

MYKE W  I will be contacting you as soon as I get the pistons in to measure protrusion for the MLS head gasket. I am also going to get the big papa oil pump and the nice baffled gasket for the oil pan, but I am cheap and will only pay for shipping once :D

I used this one :

a 1/4" drive fits into it, i dont know why you'd need a special key :P maybe if you didn't have any other tools and you somehow got the pistons out without using a 1/4" drive for anything.
after breaking two rings two seperate times trying to use this other one..

 But it may have been too big...


I had no trouble at all with the sleeve one. Just oil it up like crazy.

I am working in my basement and have uncovered the engine to take some pics of what has been going on. I am almost finished polishing the VC. The Block is going to be Chevy orange and everything bolted to it will be Gloss black. The valve cover is undecided though. I sanded the paint and junk off of it and now like the looks of it so I might just do the VW letters in Chevy orange and clear the rest or black the rest...maybe you guys could let me know what you think.

I have differnet stages of polishing on the valve cover.

My question is what to do with it. should I paint it black with the chevy orange VW or just polish it completely and clear it?

Also what do you think of the old basement engine overhual? LOL I told my friend about it and he asked " how in the hell are you getting it up the stairs?" He didn't realize these things aren't a small block chevy or ford. I think the bentley says they are only around 200 lbs assembled. I told him I would carry it out the same as I brought it in. :D

I think that I hope you're not frying a turkey down there... would ruin the nice polish job you did on the VC. ;-)

During university I was "between garages" and stored a spare Beetle motor on the balcony of the apartment I was living in at the time. Two of us easily lifted it up seemingly endless flights of stairs... good thing the balcony was high enough that the super never noticed. ;-)

He also found a sleeve for the intermediate shaft.


Any idea where a person might find one of these sleeves?  My I-shaft has a groove in it...I replaced the seal but it still leaks.

I think if I remember it was for a toyota of some type. There was another guy on here that had the same thing done, but I don't know where that post is. If someone doesn't pipe up I will call the machinist tomorrow and find out.

Seeing Turbo J say I have been doing something else besides drinking beer got me to thinking about the Jetta of mine that this engine is going into. You guys haven't seen this beauty :D I have some work to do and I am not painting it until I have the engine perfect. I just wanted to have a rust extermination before the engine went in. I also am not putting the engine in until the car is ready that way the rings won't be sitting doing nothing for months. Sorry to bore you but here is some of the ground work. I have already welded the seat belt back in and now as you see am contemplating the floor...re-floor  :shock:



Not the best car but the fender and driver floor are the only spots of rust on the car that are bad. I am relaxing now, but will hopefully have some welded in place by sunday. If I can get half of it done that will be perfect. Lots of work ......
