Shredded Piston

Recommended Posts

As the title implies, I have successful leveled my piston's teeth. It's a VFC stock clear polycarb piston. My guess is that I shimmed the sector too high.


Also, I recently SS'd a tooth off my sector, but left the piston as it was (I know, I know) so that the release tooth was plastic and ran maybe 100 cycles through it, however after reshimming after replacing the motor the piston was cheese in less than 10 cycles and stripped all teeth save for the metal one at once, even blew out the back tooth, which leaves me to believe the sector shimming was the culprit, I don't know for sure however.


Thoughts? Any other reason that could have cause this to happen?

That is exactly why you want a metal release tooth. The sole cause of that stripping is due to releasing on a plastic tooth.


Your shimming is fine. You have full contact with the teeth.
