Hello, We have question if it's there a difference in the installation for high compression pistons.
We bought set and found that pistons have special cutting for thermal expansion. Can you please advice if it's have any procedure to which side must be install this cutting (by rotation or against rotation)?

PS. We restore 1912 T-Model, in our vintage club at Western Ukraine, and it's only first and one car in all our country which we know, no one has any experience of this model restoration. We take all the information from the Internet. Ordered several books on ebay, but find a good book not easy, especially when you do not know which is better.

Please advice.
Thanks and Best Regards.
Dmitry and Kyryl.

The slot goes on the side of the engine away from the camshaft.

Another thing -- The box those pistons come in says to use .002-.003" clearance when boring the cylinders. It is much better to use .0045-.005" clearance.

Hello Mike,
Many thanks for quick respond. We bought pistons from macsautoparts, but it came with box without any notice. Much appreciated for information.
