I use my thumbs to lightly spread the ring ends , while fitting the ring over the piston .

Piston mounted on the rod with clips in place should flop freely .

Rings in proper position on the piston .

Piston gets started into the cylinder , until stopped by the top ring . That insures the piston is going in straight .

I use my fingernails or a small screwdriver to seat the rings in the landings .

The beveled edge at the bottom of the cylinder helps to finish seating the rings , allowing the piston to move up for a repeat on the lower ring .

Don't forget to place the base gasket before starting that^ process . ;)
