New ring compressor worked perfect, the oil rails had the correct gap during installation.
I'm trying something different, assembling engine on the bench without using an engine stand. I'm thinking the heads are a strengthening factor to the aluminum block, that seems to move around a lot. Trying to assemble the engine without induced stress from hanging on engine stand. I'm not sure how to measure the results. Joel would ask me if I was trying pick fly stuff out of pepper. Many a truths are spoken in jest.
