Update

I’ve got my gapless rings installed and the engine put back together. I followed the Total Seal instructions for break-in and used their dry ring break-in compound. Only 160 miles on the rebuilt engine and the rings are sealing up very well. Vacuum is 16 mm at idle and 18-19 mm during deceleration. There was zero smoke out the back and the engine power and idle is very smooth.
