Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident
we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill
level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to
get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in
return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there
is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I
can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you
through it.

That's not good, the best thing to do is replace them all with new ones. If you just install these back just anywhere, you stand a good chance of having low compression and burning oil. Don't forget to clean up the cylinders too.

Thanks, Ron

Hi RON my name is***** have been working on trucks, boats and heavy machinery for 40 years. I believe the pistons and conrods are assembled according to weight at the factory. The engine is going to power an ultralight aeroplane.

All the more reason to not take any chances:)

Thanks again, Ron
