I purchased motor carb frame and a few other things, the kid I bought it from said it was a BBR motor... I put everything together and realized the the piston wasn't making a complete stroke. So when I took the everything apart I discovered the piston was hitting the crank shaft. So i don't know if I have the wrong piston, wrong rod or what... So if someone could please help point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

thank you guys for your input very much... I've seen some videos on youtube noting the lower wrist pin location... I just wasn't sure how many types of pistons there are and if someone could tell me which one i would need. does the marking on my connecting rod tell me what kind of piston i should get?

Jeff put the piston back on the rod without the rings and slide the cylinder on, rotate the crank till the piston is at TDC and see if the piston reaches the top of the cylinder. It probably won't, the piston type A I posted is a low pin type, type B is the high pin type.

If you look at the picture Tyler posted and the one I posted they are opposite, just make sure you are buying the right piston. Measure yours and find one that lists the pin height you need. I've only seen 2 types.

yea the piston is the wrong one you need the lower wrist pin hole piston. make sure when you get a new one and install it the ring gaps face the intake even if the arrow is opposite. alot of times the arrow is on the wrong side on new pistons.
