    Piston Pins.........

    I had this question just asked me and it has got me wondering.

    Is it a good idea to go with full floating pins instead of pressed ones? What are the gains/disadvantages of both?


    Now the engine is not a race motor but does have or will have slightly better hp output. He is going to have forged internals. So what I was wondering what you guys thought about that.
    Its all fun and games till someone loses a nut!

    The first time I put them in I got so frustrated I came close to bouncing the piston off the concrete...but I agree it was easy once you get the hang of it though.
