I am in the process of replacing the pistons after a ring job, and they are
very stiff to push into the cylinders.  I expected them to need only a
little bit of encouragement, where in fact they need some fairly substantial
belts with the handle of my hammer to push them down far enough to attach
the big end caps.

Is this normal?  I am worried the thing wont turn over when I have it fully
