I'm sure you have the rings in the right order, beveled edge facing up. Are you doing a diesel? I don't remember the gas having 5 ring pistons. What kind of a kit do you have there? That bottom 3 piece oil ring can be a sob to install, if there is no instructions, place the center spacer in the groove, hold butt ends with your thumb towards you, roll top ring around and into place and then do the bottom one, with the butt end of the spacer at 6 o-clock, you want the other gaps at 10 and 2 o-clock. Make sure that the thin rings stay on top of the spacer and don't get off and alongside and bind in the ring groove. The assembly has to move free in the groove. Assemble every thing dry and then oil before you install the ring compressor, be sure to stagger all the rings on the piston and it's always a good idea to push the rings into the cyl and check the end gap. I usually mount the piston on the rod and with a clean rag clamp the rod in a vice with the piston down tight to the vice, makes it easier to install the rings. This is getting long but I made a piece of light channel with holes drilled to go from a short head bolt in the rear to one of the 3/8 bolts in the front to hold the sleeves in while I'm doing bottom work with the engine upside down and turning the crank etc, you do not want to push a sleeve out of place, especially using sealer on the o-rings, I'll quit preaching, good luck.
