I guess I won't know what the problem is until I pull it apart but for now I am assuming that I put the rings in upside down on those 2 cylinders. I think I had a pretty good cross hatch when I honed the cylinders out, they didn't need to be bored because when I measured them initially they were all within the allowed tolerance for the engine. i was planning on pulling the intake and exhaust off as well as the head and pan and pushing the pistons out the top without taking the motor out so I can't take it to a shop. If I find that the rings were orientated properly, I might then decide to pull the block and get it measured again. If the rings are in upside down, then I think I'll rehone those 2 cylinders and put new rings in ( the right way ) and put it back together. Do you think I will need to get new gaskets ?
