Ed and all,
I realize that Porsche Mahle pistons are designed for the wire type circlips, and other types of circlips or snap rings won't fit properly. I just wondered why they (and JE) chose this type of retainer as opposed to other more user-friendly retainers. Yes, I have the Stomski tool for installation of the wire type clips, but one can't help wonder why.
