Replacing rods, rings and pistons on my TT 225 and the brand new JE FSR Pistons touch the squirters :(

Waited 3 months for manufacturing so it’s pretty frustrating. Regardless, anyone else had this issue?

Using Manley rods with same dimensions as stock rods, wrist pins are JE as well. Pistons are stock 81mm

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

Washer is not an option as crank is in (was supposed to be a quick rod change - scope creek at its best)

The squirter is hitting right in the middle of bottom webbing between skirt and wrist pin hole so I’m not sure if it will be structurally sound after grinding it.

I’ve contacted Urotuning and they are interfacing with JE.
We’ll see how it goes

Ps. Sorry no pics as Tapatalk won’t let me upload
