A little Google research has piston rings moving about 1 revolution per 1000 rpms, give or take. The 3 part oil ring probably moves as a unit (especially important to space them correctly), and all of them move relative to each other, so 'theoretically' my engine should smoke or not smoke just as much as it did before the timing chain broke the guide, LOL.

I do realize I'm doing this part sorta risky like, but that's ok, I'm aware of the risk and am willing to get it running first, then tear it down again if I need to.
