Default Re: i took the piston out of the barrel i cant get it in HELP

I wouldnt, the rings hold the piston away from the wall of the cylinder as well as provide a seal for compression. With only one ring the piston is going to "slap" against the cylinder wall, possibly scratching it, then scratched even with both rings installed your compression will be low because it is escaping by the rings thru the scratches.....
