Interesting end profile on those rings.  It's been a while since I've looked at rings - don't remember the profile being so 'domed'.

This sounds very promising, Scotch. 
Do the cylinders look good after having been honed?
Any sign of your valves from Australia?

My Pistons and cylinders mic'd to within spec. so a light precision honing was all that was required. Valves from Australia arrived in good time and were fit per seat; some with a light stem grinding with the intent to keep the shims as close to the same for the intake and exhaust. Whether this effort works will be discovered when I check the clearances. Rings should be here in a week and then the assembly can start.
