I used a socket just big enough to seat the wrist pin retainers. The TM did not specify a special tool to install or to use for leak tesing. They all went in good with the detent facing in. One was a bit problematic and it got buggered up just a bit At the edge. I ended up with an extra retainer so I may pull Out the buggered up one and replace. Will Wagner lent me a ring compressor for installing the pistons in the Liners. I’ll post a pic of the buggered one this weekend.
The Kent- Moore tool part number shown in one of the service manual pics is for a 53 series. A 92 series would have a bigger wrist pin and a different tool and number. it would be a good idea to check those retainers for leaks cuz oil can leak there if not sealed good and then you burn oil. I used a socket one time with a 53 series and the engine used a lot of oil. A tapered sleeve piston installer would be a lot easier than a ring compressor. There are 5 rings on each piston and you don't want to break any. If I had a tapered installer for a 92 series I would loan it to you but I don't. Your gonna need an injector timing tool also later on. I have one but not sure if it's what you need. I'll see which one I have. Carry on!

Mike, DO REPLACE that buggered up retainer. I've seen them come unseated and tear up a piston and liner. Other wise, carry on. (y)

You can see the buggering is superficial. I can still replace before assembly. Your thoughts?
