Piston liner ring seal question
if i was to replace the Piston liner ring seal i see people saying how they would do it.
But i want to know why is it not possible to just pull the liner off the piston and slide the o ring over the piston as i guess it would be the same size as the liner thus bigger then the piston and put it in place, Then replace the liner .
I know doing it that way i wont be able to use a ring compressor but ive replaced pistons before without using one. but as this is a 1st time for me working on a alfa is it alot harder to compress the rings by hand to slip back in the liners.
thanks in advance
