This is a good idea, but not foolproof. You gotta pay attention to the rings
as they slip by the chamfer; they may tend to hang up. Careful prodding with
a screwdriver will make sure they pass thru without damage.
Isn't the bottom of the barrel chamfered already?

OK, how about this ?
Simply bevel the end of the barrel so the it acts like its own 'ring
So, whichever way you install it, slip the piston into the 'inner' end of
the barrel and the rings are compressed by the beveled edge ?
OK, start picking this one apart !
Thanks for your support !

I bought my tapered ring Corvair specific compressor from Ray Sedman.
I also have the "official" Kent- Moore demountable compressor for
those" jug on engine" replacements.
