Maccari piston buttons are so close in colour to it's opposite side,that I have a hard time telling which side is which?.I know that the Brown-side gets the glue and maroon is on top,but which is which(brown is the darker colour?),or the maroon is the darker colour? Huck

The Maroon should have a reddish tone under bright light.

Thats correct Huck. Just make sure the piston area is really clean prior to glueing. Found a light fine sand papering 400 grit works and then clean with brakleen, alcohol or even nail polish remover.

I have never cleaned the dots. Just made sure my hands were clean and free of oils and such prior to handling.

I see you gave up on home made buttons? So these Maccari deals, what dia and thickeness are they? Weird how they have different sides, makes me wonder what they are.

That's interesting. And you just stick them onto the piston without having to machine a recess?

The Maccari Buttons are the easiest and Yes they work. For those with the equipment machined in guides are great, if you care to take the time or want to do them that way. Both equal the same results.......smmooooooother shot cycle.

Wasn't the plastic you already tried too thick? If so then are these any better? The stuff I use is .0075" thick and I still need to sand them down, so I guess either way you're sanding? I wonder what they're made of?
So do they look like they were cut using a paper hole punch? I always pictured him with a sheet or roll of whatever plastic and a hand punching at a buck each.

Just curious as to what kind of glue you are using to keep the buttons in place?

Thanks

I used some extra strength Krazy Glue,not the gel. Huck

I have used them and currently have them on my 97, they work fine, Krazy glue is what he recommends to use.
They will most likely have to be sanded down once installed.

He has instructions on his website
