Hmmm...I hope Bill K can answer this - I really can't remember ever seeing or hearing of anything like this.

My only thought is that this was a production line rebuilt engine, with one guy on each side of engine, and that somehow the #1,3,5,7 piston guy messed up! Either he damaged parts during installation or didn't get the right ring end gaps.

Question: do the pistons from the pass side match the drivers side pistons? Not only in style and brand, but size also. Speaking of size, do you think that the piston rings were for the same size pistons on both sides? Did it look like the ring end gaps were set in the right relationship from side to side - the driver's side ring gaps are set 180 degrees opposite of the passenger side.

Dunno really, but I'm curious what others have to say.
