I just thought of piston rings today as well.
There doesn't appear to be oil in coolant or vice versa. I'm running distilled water, not glycol, so it'd be a little harder to tell.
I didn't run a compression test on the replacement engine, but only because I don't have a test kit. Really regretting that now. I guess that's the next step before wasting any more time and money.
If it needs new rings I may as well start over with a different engine. The whole point of this one was that it supposedly came out of a running car.
