Posted this earlier today and it went away. My question is: Which side of the motor does the slot go with alumn pistons. My Dykes manual says the solid side of the skirt always goes on the thrust side which would be the drivers side looking rearward from the radiator.

Somehow I missed it while ago.

No problem. There is a lot of traffic on this forum, it doesn't take long for older threads to get bumped down the list. If you know the title or just a few keywords in the earlier thread, you can do a "ctrl-F" and search the forum page for the older thread. :-)

The slot in the piston goes on the side away from the cam. The wrist pin bolt is customarily put toward the cam, but I don't know that that really matters.

Slot away from the cam and bolt toward the cam. More important is to have them all the same direction and the marks on the rods in alignment with the marks on the caps.
