So... do we know yet what the problem was? If the rings were put on the right way, was it the gap that was the culprit?
My theory is that since I didn't do the ring gaps, they expanded with the heat and pressure and scoured the cylinder and piston. This created some free play and the noise that was heard was the piston not seated properly.
Any other opinions would be appreciated.
