304 rebuild : Ring Position
Starting to reassemble my 304, and have a question for all you motor builders about ring position. Haynes manual says to stagger compression ring gaps 270 degrees, which would be 90 degrees apart, but does not say where to position them. I always thought the oil ring seperator aligned with the wrist pin, oil ring retainers on a 1 inch overlap, and compression rings aligned on the skirt, 180 degrees apart.
Any opinions or advice?
