The trick is to have a similarly adept friend to feed the rings into the bottom of the liners with their fingers simultaneously with yourself doing the same on the other of the two pistons as the block's lowered gradually
I considered "stuffing by hand" for about 10 seconds! Not too bad when the jugs are upside down on the bench. The "rounded" "Cruizinimage" rings wouldn't be an issue. These IMD rings have VERY sharp edges ! The compressors will let me keep my finger-nails and finger-tips.
Currently: shimming..... on the bench. A lot easier at this stage. I'll need to order some new sizes but the machine-shop was good to their word. Lots of room for shims !.

I really struggled wih mine. I even bought some commercially available ring compressors but they just didn't work. They either just came off or deformed when trying to comress the rings.
I broke one of my rings at the time (Crusin Imafge) and I had to buy a complete set of 6 as they wouldn't sell individually at the time! A coupel of my spare ring sets have gone to other owners witht he same problem.
I still keep an eye out for genuine ones on evil-bay but they are never complete and always way too expensive.
Hopefully I will never need these again but will keep it in mind just in case
