That's what I mean though. From the rebuilds I've done, all pistons have a little "notch" on the ring gap area to stagger them. If the ring wasn't in that gap: A) I don't know how they got the piston in, B) possibly has bad wear on the cylinder?

Hopefully things look ok and it's a cheap fix. Do they have pictures?

Better news then what it could have been though! That DR can be waiting for you in Australia all the same =)
