reuse wrist pin?

installing my first kit...the wrist pin that came with the kit is too won't seat far enough into the new piston to allow the other circlip to sit in the groove

seriously, it's about 3mm longer than the stock wrist pin...can i use the old wrist pin?

You can but it is defective then. Have it replaced.

My self I would knock of the extra length using a flapper disk style grinder.

You can really keep the cut square and sharp with one of these.
