    After the fact meaning after you started it?

    And "will show up" means spinning a bearing right? haha

    I just thought of something. What did you set your ring end gap to? Maybe they're too tight and cause a damn good seal, so when you turn the engine over the compression give you stronger resistance than normal. Just a thought.

    TSRM say No.1 ring set between 0.29-0.44mm. No.2 ring 0.25-0.53mm. Oil ring 0.10-0.44mm.
    What did you spec yours out to?

    Well I measured by thousandths of an inch with feeler gauges. I did not file them at all I just measured them in the honed bore of my block. starting with top ring, going down

    Also my cylinder head is not on yet, so there is only resistance, no compression. I plan on removing one rod at a time and turning the engine over until it stops, then checking that assembly. I think I really should gap the rings evenly...

    Such lack of motivation right now.

    Piston 1 .022-.022-.024
    Piston 2 .020-.024-.025
    Piston 3 .020-.022-.022
    Piston 4 .024-.022-.024
    Piston 5 .018-.020-.022
    Piston 6 .028-.024-.025
