Put the modified wear ring into the top groove of the piston. To create the modified wear ring, shave one edge of a new wear ring (not included in kit) with a belt sander and have the wear ring facing up so there is an easier placement of the cap seal. Put the piston assembly tool onto the piston to fit in the groove.
