Re: oil coming out of dipstick hole

after honing the cylinder how do I measure the skirt distance

Re: oil coming out of dipstick hole

I am putting new rings on all 6 pistons
I haven't removed the old rings so all are where they were
is it best to remove the piston from the rod install the rings on it and put it in the cylinder leaving enough room to connect to rod
