One thing that occurs to me is that it's easier to install the cylinders with the rings at the top. With the oil ring at the bottom, the piston has to be all the way inside the cylinder, which makes it impossible to install the piston pin. With the rings at the top, you can compress all three, stick the piston partially into the cylinder, then mate the piston to the rod and slide the cylinder all the way on.
