So I purchased a 83 185s and there was snapping coming out from the top end gaskets or something. It was blowing smoke like crazy. I pulled it apart and noticed it was put together with liquid gasket. I purchased a complete gasket kit. I've got the piston out and the cylinder wall looks great as well as the piston. I assume I need new rings, is the oil ring smaller in diameter than the rest? Its a stock piston, what ring set should I get .25? This is the first time I've actually done piston rings myself and am ready to order the set but not quite sure it needs it. The rings look fine, could it be possible that the crappy liquid gasket was causing a leak somehow and making oil in my exhaust. Im pretty sure thats why there was popping coming from the left side of the top end, it was deafening loud. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
