Here's my MG Metro engine from my Mini. After getting the block prepared, bored to 1293cc and fitting the crank, this video shows me fitting the pistons with con rods.
They're Hepolite pistons and are supposed to be the best quality for the A series engine.
The piston ring compression tool wasn't that good. Getting that last bit of squeeze on the rings was difficult. I got it from Halfords but it did the job I suppose.
The music is from Orbital and is called Attached. It was recorded on the Peel Sessions in the 90s.
