hi; i have rebuilt many small engines and have never seen pins in piston ring slots, so today i went to a tool rental stores mechanic to see if he knew of them. he said no and showed me two houskavarna motors on the bench. no pins. is that the end of it? mitch

these are simple engines
the locating pins are so the rings cover each others open end thats all

Pins in ring lands

Hi, well the little pins locate the rings, so they will not hang up in the transfer ports. This may not be the best method, but it does work
