    The ring with the lip ( L shaped) goes into the top groove.There will be a small pin/bump inside of the groove,the ends of the rings need to line up at that pin.

    The L shape goes towards the top,sorta forms a cup at top of piston.If I remember corectly,the piston has a portion cut away at the top to accomadate the L shape.
