With every bike I've owned I've always put the bevels down |
and had no problem. I'm not a racer or a high miler on any
one resurrected bike and have owned several. You needed a
quick answer. Best of Luck....and have fun!

Hi esteemed Harley Hummer gurus. Rookie
question here. I am very close to completing assembly of
my 1955 ST165 engine. You see in the photo that the
replacement rings have a been on one inside corner. Does
that bevel go towards the top of the piston (as currently
shown in the photo), or towards the bottom of the piston?
Hope for a quick answer so I cam complete the assembly and
get the engine off of the dining room table before my wife
