That's a little scary with the ring snapping that easily. Are those OEM rings, or did they come with the new pistons?

They were the rings that came with the CP pistons. They are delicate

I knew about the notching, sorry I didn't post anything about that beforehand. I think you have a ring on the way, those are cast iron, so yeah they take a soft touch.

The 2nd ring is like that, it is a cast material (not just on our motors, and not just CP). What ring gaps did you decide?

Not sure exactly what the ring gap was. I had a friend helping with the rebuild he brought a ring grinder but he said the sizing was perfect. I think they were all just a few thousandths larger then the minimum recomended gap.

These are some pics of my progression today after getting my second compression ring overnighted from CP. I am hoping tomarrow to bolt on clutch, flywheel and trans. Also get her hung in the engine compartment.

I miss my car

That's coming along great. I think I'd be too tempted by "as long as I'm in here" mods.... good on you!

Just a little tip for do it yourselfers. When tightening head bolts lay the engine on its side or it will spin like a top.

Surprisingly enough the ring gaps were perfect right out of the box. Ive never had that happen before with file fit rings. They were all .017"-.018" on the first compression ring and .025"-.026" on the second.

Nice work getting the thing slapped back together so quickly!!!

I've run into that, it is rare though. Ring grinding is time consuming !

Been there...doing that now!

Brian, are you planning on pushing the new motor to see where you can go with it without being sleeved?

Haven't posted of here in ages! Today driving in the morning my car make a crack sound and something in the engine is making a ticking noise when I drive drove it home and left it there! Once I get home I can check and see if i can find the problem! It was freezing this morning I let the car warm up coolant temp was roughly 70*c and intake tempt was 17*c I hope my internals aren't damaged
