degrees from parting line.
e. Fitting Piston
Fit new or used piston to
corresponding cylinder liner and
retain as matched set for assembly
(1) Using a micrometer, measure piston
skirt outside diameter parallel to and
perpendicular with piston pin bore at
room temperature, 70oF (21 oC).
Diameter must be 4.2428 to 4.2450
inches. Taper and out of round must
