The machine shop siad since the rings have never seen the road and the engine has only seen 2 gallons of gas, they should be fine with a fresh bore as this was fresh too.  But given all the crap I have found, I might do that anyway.  I have to put money into this I don't have

Wow the whole thing is a real bummer...

Seems like we're all putting out $ we don't have on our cars. It's a very
expensive hobby. I know in my heart I should get down to one car - the
'58, so the '70 vert may have to be for sale soon. Seems like it always goes
this way, you get spread too thin, but you have to keep perspective, don't want to retire poor.

Well, pull them off without breaking them, 400grit them the length of the ring face five or six times, wash them, put them back in. Heck, I have had to replace rings because they sat too long inside the bore of an engine not run and went lax, plenty of smoke and oil blowing around inside the exhaust pipes. If you have a fresh bore and all that, it's a real savings, might as well.

It was quite a while ago, like 1990, but they were moly rings, only ones I ever use. The engine sat assembled for 11 months before started. This was the third time I had rings do this, the other two engines sat about the same length of time but were cast rings. Other guys, engine assembled for 13 years and sitting under a bench and didn't have a problem at all.

Thia wull go on the trans and activate the shift lever.  We're thinking of putting a bunch of switches  in a box  and a ball on the end of the cable.  a separate button for park for safety and security

Hey, '55 & 56 Packards had push button actuated shifters just like
Mopar, but using button controlled solenoids and a motor driven sector
gear that did the actual shifting... might be something to look at for
ideas.
