After the cylinder bore diameter has been checked
and is acceptable to rebuild, the ring end gap should
be checked using new rings. Place a new compression
ring squarely in the center of the ring travel area. Use
the piston upside down to push the ring down (diag.
28) and measure the gap with a feeler gauge. The
ring end gap must be within the specification to have
adequate oil control (diag. 29). This procedure will
assure correct piston ring end gap measurement. Ring
side clearance should also be checked with a feeler
gauge when using new rings with an old piston (diag.
30).
Replace the rings in sets and install the piston, rings,
and rod assembly in the cylinder bore with the ring
end gaps staggered. When installing new rings in a
used cylinder, the cylinder wall should be de-glazed
using a commercially available de-glazing tool or hone.
Use a ring expander to remove and replace the rings.
Do not spread the rings too wide or breakage will result.
