Gudgeon pin clips - Almost impossible to get in without scratching the bugger out of the new piston you've just put in BangHead BangHead

Prob made by the same guys that made all those tent and sleeping bag covers that are 3 times to small for the stuff that goes in them :D

Hold one end in with thumb and needle nose pliers to get it in. I'm sure there is an easier way but they still suk

Maybe if you have a bench grinder you can edge the tips.

Get proper circlip plier, and the job is simple.

Some people replace the circlips with teflon buttons, they are simple.
