Measure ring gap with feeler gage. Refer to Table 4-3 for ring gap specifications. Repeat procedure for balance of compression CAUTION File or stone both ends of compression  ring  from  outer  surface to inner surface to prevent chipping or peeling of chrome plating on ring. Ends of ring must remain square, and chamfer on outer edge must be approximately  0.015  inch.
