Hello spridgets,

  Anyone here installed piston pins? Can I just put the pins in the
  freezer and the rods in a 250 degree oven and then carefully push
  them in?

I think they need to be heated to 600* and it has to be done quick.
Go to a machine shop, the last thing you want is to have your wrist pins walk out and score the cylinder walls.
At $5 a piston, it is well worth it. I don't think my machinist charges me $5, more like $2 or 3 each.
