Question about Mantis Gas Mini Tiller/Cultivator, 2 - Cycle
Is there a "shade-tree mechanic" trick to compress the piston ring so the piston can be inserted in the cylinder? Commercial compessor tools seem to be too large to fit in space available. Would a hose clamp work? My tiller is an SV-5C/2.
I make one with tin snips and a tin can or sheet metal from an air duct. Make sure you have the ring with the right side "UP", the beveled edge (if there is one) goes up or toward the head.
