Do the arrows on the top of the pistons on a 1993 Harley face the exhaust ?


No, the arrows face towards the front of the engine. This is because the combustion chamber has a flat "squish area" instead of the older hemispherical design of earlier years. On the earlier Shovelheads and Ironhead Sportsters, you had to look for the ridge on the piston pin boss on the underside or the eyebrow for the intake valve. Not so on the Evolution engines. ARROWS GO TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE.

Good Luck

Husqvarna 141 piston ring, what is the required gap for the ring? Also, does it matter which way the piston is positioned in the cylinder, there is no arrow or difference that I can tell by looking at it.


It's been a few years but I've installed piston rings in many small engines. Many rings are beveled or rounded on the top outside to prevent excessive cylinder wear or scaring the cylinder wall. The bevel should be very slight and very hard so see. Some may have a small dot or marking cast into the ring near the end/split. If that is the case the ring should be installed with the marking turned toward the cylinderhead. Hint, lube the piston, rings, and cylinderwall before installing the piston. Gene
