I guess the ring snapped because i accidentally sprayed water with pressure washer on left side of the hot cylinder, and after that full throttle to where ever i was riding.

This is not stock tomos just to be clear.

This is modded a3 cylinder (not the bigger a35 cyl) that was pushing 64 kph messured with gps

Which was running extremely hot.

As the water cooled metal on the left side of the cylinder, the top of the piston was hitting the cyl wall and compressed piston ring which made it snap.

Wrist pin is in a perfect condition both from inside and outside. As i said im wondering if play I described in previous posts is okay or not, because im used to having fixed bushing that doesnt move inside of the small end of the rod

Thanks!
