<VV> Another newfangled built-in 'ring compressor' ?

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 
compressor' ?

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.
