Hi all

I am ready now to assemble the piston into the cylinder.

Could you advise on the best way to go about it.

The gland packing i have bought is about 4mm square and my slot is just wide enough for one width and deep enough for one revolutuon.

Is there any way to "stick" it in place.

Cheers Arthur

Do not cut the end square, but at 45* ! Noel
