That's not how I do my engine - and I would never tryMany ringed engines will have near zero compression (initially) when wound over by hand.
See how it responds with the same arrangement only with a drop of oil in the bore and spun with a drill at a hundred revs or so.
My way : 1- make cylinder . 2- make piston .3- make ring
Try testing pistons without rings with cylinder : they must have compression.
Assemble the rings on the pistons and check with the cylinders: they should have compression but more than the ringless pistons
That testing easy just by hand.
All engines I made: they have to have good compression from the start - and I think that's the right way to make an engine - no matter how big or small the engine is.
