Default OS 91FX Piston orientation.

I disassembled my 91FX to replace the bearings, After everything was dissembled, I was cleaning up the parts and there was no arrow on top of the piston. Which way should it go...With the thicker boss facing front or back?

You install the piston so that the ring gap is on a web between ports. That means that the pin is usually towards the opposite side from the exhaust port.

Thanks Bax,

That works. It puts the wider wrist pin boss to the front.
