Right in most cases when rebuilding an engine u would fit new pistons but if your on a budget and pistons useable u will need to clean them up so u dont get old carbon in the new engine and also so the rings fit in the ring seats properly

For this u will need :

A drill
wire wheel
brake cleaner

First we start with the old piston as u can see its very carboned up

Remove the rings and them snap them in half and use them to clean the ring seats as they are perfect size they get right to the edges

Once the seats are clean u can then use the drill and wire wheel to clean the carbon off the outer of the piston

Once clean u should have something looking like this

Now u have a nice clean piston u can fit the rings make sure u measure the rings and gaps to OEM fitment guide (sorry dont have pic of top ring fitted as it deleted )
