The first Motor I did, I re-ringed. The rings seated fine. It's something I would as I said above, to go after seating the rings. I broke it in with the crapiest 30 weight I could find. I have some freiends who redo Nikasils with no oil when they fit the new rings, so that they seat immediately on startup. The Nikasil at 80K Miles still showed the original cross hatches and everyone of my compression rings had been broken for god knows how long. Next rebuild was New P&C's. He'll most likely be fine on this.
