Default 2.3 l piston rings

1995 ford ranger rebuilding , the piston ring kit is unclear as to which ring goes in top land. One is marked with a dot and has chamfered edge, the other is a std square ring with no marks.

The 96 i just tore apart had teh chamfered edge ring in the middle groove, with the chamfer pointing down (toward the rod). The dot should be on the top IIRC. Square ring on the top groove. Hope this helps some.

Thanks for the help , I just completed the Long Block today , waiting for clucth assembley , I wil be curious how it runs with the Turbo. I thought about it but the rig is used by wife for Errands. If she did not like the rig so much I would have traded rigs. after looking Most everything I seen had 2-250 k on them . So I dusted off my tools and apparentlty knowledge that I would have known by heart at one time . Great Forum . I wil get some photos once I get better at this . Thanks again .
