I have noticed that the tops of the pistons in both my Series 3 engines are marked with an arrow and the letters DIST.
According to the Haines manual the arrows should point towards the camshaft sprocket and this is the way the pistons are fitted to the engine at present.
I guess "DIST" refers to something else than distributor? Something to do with camshaft timing probably.
Could be a trap for the unwary.
Has anyone tried "Gapless" rings in a 205 engine?
I intend to buy quality rings from Australian Precision Engine Parts, just trying to decide on gapless or not.
I've had the head rebuilt with new valve guides, a three angle valve job, and a bit of porting, including manifold matching.
