Ring Compressor?

Post by Partsetal » Fri 26. Oct 2012, 16:11

I'll have my 430 block back from the machine shop soon and before I begin assembly I need some information on a good ring compressor. With my last rebuild, I used the standard ring compressor in the inverted position as recommended by the machine shop. It worked better than in the upright position, but I still broke one top ring. What works best for compressing the rings during piston installation?
