Re: Ring pin removal replacement relocating

You can cut the old pin out easily with the proper diameter carbide end mill or possibly a  drill press if care is taken.  Easier to go through the top of the piston and peen the hole over gently. I've used wire/numbered drill bit shanks as the locator pin. 
The pin placement needs to be done carefully and the ring ends will likely need to be re-profiled with a file of diamond burr as the profile of the locating pin is different now. Make sure the ring will completely collapse in the ring land
