anyone ever rebuild an engine, and not put all the compression rings on the right way, in other words up side down?

what was your end result?

I am sure this wont get a lot of responses.

I rebuilt mine, and my neighbor was asking about why they have to be dot side up.

I explained that it has something to do with the compression, and blow by, and the rings twisting or spinning or something.

I know how to stagger the rings, but wasn't 100% sure as to why the dot goes up.
