    Quick question regarding pistons

    Forgive me for a noob question, but; Should the piston rings be able to spin around the piston and should they stick out from the piston a little bit when the cylinder is not on? I was under the impression that the piston rings should not be able to spin. All of my piston rings can spin except for the piston that was damaged.

    Edit: Sorry I forgot to mention I have the XR1800 boat which has the 1200 powervalve engine.
