In this video, Jefferson goes over how to press piston pins onto rods using an induction heater and a jig table. A jig table isn’t necessary to do the job, but you will need some sort of way to stabilize the piston head so you can precisely connect the rod to it. As Jefferson explains in the video, it is important to make sure that you get the rod up to the recommended temperature stated in the video so the pin will slide in correctly.
