IMO if you happen to get the meteor c-clips that are double tailed (pass on the meteor 2 tail ones) use the oem if they fit the groove.

I have had no problems from the single 1 tailed meteor clips, if that is what comes in your kit use them.

My not so stock 10mm 044 has been living with the double eared clips for quite some time now.
I don't run it a lot, but since the rebuild I've put 3.4hrs on the top end. (OEM jug, Meteor piston & clips, OEM pin & bearing).
With all the negative hype Ive heard about the double ear clips, I expected catastrophic failure within the first 5mins.
That was many gallons of fuel ago.

All my Meteor pistons came with pin clip rings with no tails on either side. They are for the Dolmar 115, Dolmar 6800, and Husqvarna 372.

The Meteor 45mm 353 piston has ears on both sides of the clips

Just because their in the pic dont mean you will get double eared.  I have OEM double eared in some saws no problems.

I have talked with a very reputable porter builder and he also shared the meteor doubled ear failures I been reading about.  All of them I have read about were in the 346 meteor kits. This 1 guy kept using them in rebuilds even though he was told and knew better.  He kept selling them to folks on a bigger site and I kept seeing people complaining of failures of the ear breaking off the double ears meteor circlips. 

Thats why I try and warn folks.   

 I used a single ear afm with extra long ear on circlip, I knew to trim  on a 066 piston on thinking a hyway piston. But I installed as is just to see being it was my saw. Still holding up good.

The piston is made different for a no ear circlip. The piston has a notch near the groove at the 4:30 position. This is so you can get a scribe under the circlip wire at the notch to remove the circlip.
