I'm just curious, as me being a certified auto/diesel tech, but how did you finally get piston to release from being seized? Cause if locator pin was never found, it either went thru a crank bearing, exhaust port & out the exhaust, still stuck in case somewhere, or fell on ground when cylinder was removed. It possibly could have blown back in your air filter & is sitting in the air filter. Just food for thought. I know your credentials so I'm by no way doubting you.🤣😂🤣

I saw a extremely small piece of metal bounce into my rock driveway...lol.

I'm assuming it was what was left of the ring pin...lol.

As far as how did I release the piston from the jug???

Simple...we took some warm 2 cycle synthetic oil, and poured it on the top of the piston and around the cylinder wall, we then grabbed my hammer and a block of wood and tapped the top of the piston in a gentle, repeated, fashion until it started to release itself and was then finally able to just pull the jug off over the piston...lol.

With the crack in the cylinder and the gouged out piston, Why in the world would I even consider turning that piston around...lol...The entie jug and piston is toast for me...lol...When I do get around to repairing this, at the very least, the things listed below in a previous post I made will have to be replaced.
Little JB Weld and some duct tape, you'll be back on the road in no time.

Lol I'd see if engine manufacturer will at least give you a set of crank bearings, gasket kit, & a cylinder kit.🤣😂🤣

Just to add to this statement, if you do find your piston in the wrong way, don't remove it until you have new clips to put it back the right way.
I guess I’ve been lucky, I’ve been reusing e- clips as long as they retain their shape and spring back tight in the piston. I prefer the double arm type like Damien has in his piston, they are much easier to install and remove.

Those ones seem to be formed differently than the "e" shaped ones. Half the time I snap those getting them out.
