11. Install piston rings (Figure 16, Item 2) in proper piston groove, with pip marks or bevel up. Stagger piston ring
gaps so they are not in line.
12. Turn crankshaft to position one crankshaft journal downward. Remove bearing cap from connecting rod
(Figure 16, Item 4), leaving connecting rod bolts (Figure 16, Item 5) in rod.
13. Use a ring compressor to install connecting rod (Figure 16, Item 4) and piston (Figure 16, Item 3) through top
of cylinder (Figure 16, Item 1). Push piston down until connecting rod bearing contacts crankshaft journal.
14. Align marks and install connecting rod bearing cap on rod end (Figure 16, Item 4). If cap and rod are not
marked, position cap on rod so two locking slots in bearing inserts, rod, and cap are both located adjacent to
same connecting rod bolt. Secure cap to rod with two bolts (Figure 16, Item 5) and washer key nuts (Figure 16,
