    ...the manual will tell you how to identify exactly what size pistons you have now ...there s a lettering system..since you already tore it down why not just ream the ridge and pop it out, bring it to a machinist..will need to press the piston on to the wrist pin and conn red...there are some that will come and install it for you..many leave this part to a machinist..

    You are looking for what is called the factory service manual. Has everything you need. I have one I downloaded for free, for a 1998 grand cherokee, with the 6.0. many jeep owners and registration stickers actually have the wrong year as I found out with both my jeeps. so I thought the manual was for the wrong year, thought I had a 97, but then found out its actually a 98 from the vin number. So the fsm is just what I need. You can buy them, search on the forum or google "fsm cherokeeforum" which works better than the search on this site. I think they download for about $7.
    If you get stuck I can try to email you mine its in PDF..but its huge.
