Looks great. Better to have ring gaps a bit bigger than risk breaking a ring when you compress them to assemble (BTDT). I also stagger the ring gaps when reassembling; my machinist claims that so long as the gaps are AWAY from the thrust face of the cylinder wall, and opposite each other, they're fine. Probably going to spin and end up wherever they want anyway.

I've never brazed a pickup screen to the inlet tube; have to add that one to the mental list. Can't add much to the DME issue, might want to fuse it independently (with 5 amps less) on the new one. And I'd be checking the injectors to see what caused the issue in the first place.
