piston ring compressor
Where can i find a good, and relatively cheap piston ring compressor? i have regular automotive ones but i'm assuming that's out of the question since the slugs get loaded up from the bottom on a 60T. Any ideas?

If you still need something to hold the rings, you can use tie wraps around the rings, then just cut them when you have the cylinder down far enough.

I posted this before I thought all would say I am crazy, but it was the opposite.
Zip ties, or wire ties as some call them.
Use one over each ring, slide the jug on, and cut off after the piston is in the cylinder.
Quick, cheap, and easy.
