If I have a tight wrist  pin.  I put the pin in a deep freezer for a day or so.  Never had to do anything else.

Also I never had to put a piston in a 8000 yet either.

Regarding tight wrist pins, The aluminum piston will expand much more with a little heat than the wrist pin will shrink in the freezer.

Aluminum expands 3/16" per linear foot from room temperature to it's melting point near 1200 degrees.

The steel wrist pin will expand much less at 1/8" per linear foot from room temperature to its much higher melting point around 2500 degrees. 

Therefore you will get minimal shrinking from placing the wrist pin in the freezer to drop the temperature 40 degrees F.

Jim I never tried heating the piston instead. Is this the way you do it?

I heat the piston on these.  Start the pin, position the bearing and get everything ready to go.  Heat the piston crown for 20-30 seconds with a propane torch on low.  Give the pin a shot of oil and in it goes.  Set the clip on the far side of the piston so the pin doesnt push through.

Sometimes just setting the piston in the sun or holding it in your hand will do the trick.

Did you use the flat top piston or the domed pop up style?
