Oh man- you got the one ring set in the world without printed directions? The second and third rings 'might' have a small dot a half inch in on each ring, if so, they face upwards... bevels??? UP too I think, but if no dots, wait for a another response here. I feel bad cause I just threw the package my rings were in in the trash... in the morning I will look for another package in the shop.

Always remember what it's like to be with a good woman, - "In and up, Down and out".

Bevel on the inside always goes "Up".
Bevel on the outside always goes "Down".

Chromed or plated compression rings are always the first ring from the top, if only one is fitted.

Solid oil control ring will always go "below" the gudgeon, if only one is fitted while muti-piece oil control rings always go "above" the gudgeon.

oooooohhhhh. sorry I asked...oh. I didn't ask, so I don't need to be embarrassed?
Now after all this time, I now know what the sheila in Canberra was going on about. She wanted me to overhaul her engine!
We call gudgeons here 'wrist pins'... oh! and that's what the sheila from Fremantle was on about!!!
And I remember diesel tech has a good point here, the 3 piece oil ring goes above the gud...wrist pin....
