Im not saying that you did something wrong with the install,for sure not,as i have not seen the pistons/parts..........that are broken...
I just said that i had one failure on around 30 conversions,and this was one of two set i have not installed myself,as it was a mailorder job.
Im sure the guy who put it in didnīt assemble the pin security rings correct,as it happend after about 1000km from install.
All conversions done by me are working fine,so there "could" be the problem in the install....as normaly the pistonpin doesnīt get too much pressure to throw the security rings out,when they are installed correctly.
