    All your rings should float....
    and be of a larger dia., uncompressed, than the piston
    Yours are stuck to your pistons.

    Just pop it out and run an edge around the piston. That should clean it for you.

    I don't know what kind of rings or piston you have, but some only go a certain way. They usually have something showing in the up position. If it was me, I would take that ring back off, and just flip it over.
