Default Re: ring question?

The reason you should mark the piston prior to removal is, if it has been run, the rings will have seated within the cylinder in that orientation. If you are working with a new piston/rings and, presumably, cylinder it doesn't matter so long as the there is no interference with the ports.

I took note of the factory orientation on a new motor and the tits were facing towards the intake port side of the head.
