I ordered a new piston and sleeve, as well as a new wrist pin and clip. I had previously taken my engine apart, mostly just out of curiousity after I lost compression, and did not pay attention to which way the connecting rod was installed. Which direction is the channel on the rod supposed to face? I suspect towards the clutch/carb side of the engine, but I would like to know for sure so I can get it right when I rebuild.
On a side note, if anyone knows where I can find break in procedures that I might print, please let me know. I bought my rustler used and I have no manual for it. Maybe the piston and sleeve come with a set of break in instructions..
Thanks in advance
