On this I stand corrected. Junster just PMed me with the information that these engines the Chinese 2 stroke, have self aligning rings. Apparently there is a pin in the ring groove that prevents two ring gaps from being lined up.. Thanks Junster for keeping me from giving bad information. Too much old hot rod stuff still floating around in my head.
