Piston Ring Position
Installing new rings onto a new piston. The manual states that the manufacturer mark on the rings should be facing up. There is no manufacturer mark!
Can I assume that the "beveled" edge of the ring faces up?

the manual has a very clear diagram of how it looks. also the ring has radius cut for clearance of the ring alignment pin the radius will only engage the pin in one direction. put the ring on and squeeze to check alignment to the pin.

The Bevel side on the ring does point up just like the picture. Page 106 and 107 in my manual show the ring alignment. page 109 shows what you are describing.

Look for a T or C on 1 side of the ring. It can be hard to see like a 3d image somtimes. Look at an angle and look to the right of the ring gap about 1/2 to 1" & No I don't reuse circ (cir) clips
