    Works as well as expected for a wrap type piston install tool. The edges are sharp so be careful not to slit open your fingers.

        Comments about AutoCraft Piston Ring Compressor:

        I bought this for a 4G63 build I am working on and it worked just fine for that. It is pretty easy to torque down even if it is covered in oil but the release latch can be a bit difficult to operate. For the price though I really can't complain much and if you only need it for one build I wouldn't hesitate to pick one up.

          Not a bad tool for a one time use. No need to buy a $50 ring compressor to build 1 engine. Worked fine for me, no issues at all.

                No, Pepaw! This Piston Ring Compressor - Part No. AC526/W80572 used to install pistons without damage. This engine tool use positive compression and an adjustable friction brake to install pistons on most passenger cars. Having this tool to service your engine is a must!

                You should be able to do something as small as a motorcycle piston.
