Since we both agree rings rotate, what are the chances of him tearing the engine apart at the exact time of them lining up?
As they do rotate then they cannot be in their original positions.
You’re telling me that one in a trillion City Garage won the lottery of the mighty piston ring alignment prize?
As you agree that rings rotate then the rings being in the position they were found cannot be down to human error but something else.
How many times does it have to be said?
How do you know the ring groves are not to tight from day one when the rings were assembled into the piston?
And how do you know they were?
So now you are saying the rings haven't rotated. Could you at least make up your mind? Tight ring grooves wouldn't be an "assembly worker" error unless you think assembly workers stop to measure every individual part?
Why is it so hard for you to believe that humans are ignorant or make mistakes that this is most likely a human error?
How can it possibly be put down to human error if, as you have already agreed, rings rotate?
Instead you seem to believe that they just magically aligned at the time of tear down.
No, I don't think they "just magically aligned" (eh Voodooo?) only that the human error argument doesn't hold up so there must be another reason.
I asked you clearly. Why didn’t he just keep running the engine until they rotated and fix itself and stopped smoking and when the compression raised and fixed itself.
See previous reply.
I asked you clearly If you accept rings rotate then they are not going to be in the same position they were when fitted 2500 miles back, yes or no? but got no answer.
