Default doh....

     

i FINALLY got my cylinder back!!!!!11!!!!one1!!!!!1!!!
but then i went to go put it on and youll never guess what happened... the rings that supposedly fit my piston were WAY to wide and even crossed eachother when i fit them in the cylinder without the piston... so now im left to buy a new pair of rings... anyone got any ideas? there .25 over so should i just get standard? there needs to be two rings on this piston since it has two ring grooves, any thoughts? just buy the standard rings?

Do you have a OEM piston and off brand rings? (width)
Do you know what your clearence is between your piston and the the cylinder is and what it should be? (overlap)
Do you have a manual for your engine? (tells you what the ring gap should be in the bore)

Well you said the rings were to wide. I assumed after you sais they overlapped which would mean the rings were not the correct rings for that piston.......does wide & overlap mean the same thing?
