you are making it harder than it needs to be, you will have a heck of a time getting the rod back on the piston in the engine. They go in from the bottom because the rod is bigger than the bore. When I said I put them in and push the piston out the top, I am doing it rod and piston, the piston will come out just to the pin before the rod hits the bottom of the sleeve, which gives you enough room to install the rings and make sure they are all where you want them and use a ring compressor and knock them back down in the cylinder. They are built so you can put all the rings on and just use the taper on the bottom of the sleeve to compress the rings and you don't need a ring compressor, but I like to be different I guess.
