Ok I went to check out my rings last night to see how the end gap was. Well
the compression rings all were fitting nice inside the cylinders at .38MM
every one in each of the 4 cylinders.  Now the oil control rings, (all of
them)  read the same in each of the cylinders at .55MM which is way to big
according to the Bentley.  Shouldn't the oil rings be the same as the
compression?  Is it my luck to have gotten a bad set?  I checked the old oil
rings that came out of the engine and they were .40MM.  I'm thinking the
bore has to be right if the rings fit correctly, or could it be that the
bore is off and I got a tight set of compression rings and the oil rings are
the ones that are correct.
