Piston Ring Check...

Hi Everyone,

I've just done a quick piston ring check on an 'unknown to me' Midget 1500 engine. Cylinder 3 emptied after 35 minutes, with the others still not empty after one hour. Obviously cylinder 3 is the weaker, but to be honest, I would have thought even 35 minutes was pretty good? It all looks pretty good inside and the head/valves are good.

Should I re-ring, or just pop it back together?

Thanks, Nick
