Hey Adam, congrats on getting the jug off! That must have been a huge relief! I just took mine off again yesterday to check rings and reinstalled. What I do to put it back together is:

-Clean gasket surfaces. I use WD40 and a razor blade. Clean off oil.

-Attach gaskets in place with 4 tiny dabs of silicon on outside edge of bolt holes. This will keep them from sliding around when you are trying to line up and install everything later.

-Lube inside of cylinder and outside of piston and rings with 2-stroke oil.

-Make sure all surfaces are clean

-Insert piston into cylinder carefully, one ring at a time. I just use my thumbnails to press the ring into its slot so I can slide piston into cylinder. The piston only needs to go into the cylinder about half way.

-Hold cylinder up to the connecting rod with one hand, lining up holes in piston with hole in connecting rod.

-Insert wrist pin through cylinder and connecting rod with your 'free hand' (ha-ha! Got a match?)

-Once the wrist pin is in, I put a block of wood under the cylinder to support it so I can center the wrist pin and put the clips on the ends of the wrist pin that hold it in place.

-Put top two bolts through head, gasket, cylinder, gasket and finger tighten.

-Put in bottom two bolts and torque all four bolts working in an 'X' pattern.

Good luck to you!
