Thanks Scotty!  

Last time I made up a couple of wood jigs that I fit under the center two pistons (they go around the connecting rods) to hold them upright while I slid the cylinders down over them.  Once the first two were done I switched to the outer ones.  But the setup shown is much better!

I'm still looking for some candy apple red OEM painted parts!

Edited to add that this is something you may want for your Z1.

$US to boot!  I wanted to see the underside of the tank to verify it's original.  I might have been a buyer.  The sidecovers had the correct marks inside and are original as far as I know.

The candy apple blue ones on ebay offered by rscmotorsports.  They also have the pipes for sale.  I'm thinking hard about it.

Darn thing is up to over $200 with a half day to go.  I think it's reached my price limit.  I can manage with my jig setup.
