No positive resolution yet. Thanks for your concern.

As I was taking some pictures of the cylinder to post, I looked closely at the ring to see how it fit when completely compressed. I noticed it did not close completely and on even closer inspection realized that part if the end was broken off. The ends did not meet at all. Don't know when that happened but -MIGHT THAT BE A SOURCE OF COMPRESSION LOSS?  :'(

Furthermore, on my first attempt to get the cylinder over the piston I think I both slightly damaged the piston and scored the head. Between all those errors, I'm sure it's not sealing properly. Better start over with a new piston/cylinder.

Now, does anyone have an old 361-371 class saw for sale? Is $200 - $350 a reasonable price?
