Detergent. Why clean the rings? You should be installing new.

Yeah dont reuse rings and make sure to have the cylinders honed and break it in right once its built. Have fun! :)

Youre going to have to pull the engine back apart once you realize how much oil your burning. And all the costs that go with it, head gasket, time, etc.

Find another distributor and buy from them if they can get them immediately. I'm assuming you're using OEM rings.
