Yamaha 5hp 5BS Piston Rings

Hi, so I have purchased some new Yamaha genuine piston rings for my Yamaha 5hp 5BS air cooled engine but I don't know which is which. One of the rings is green on the outer edge - is this the top ring or the bottom ring? I guess one is specifically for oil wiping?

They do look to be. It was only the colour/coating that I could see was different.

I wouldnt have thought it matters, being a 2 stroke and 100/1 they wont have a lot of oil to scrape.

Ok thanks. Is it worth getting it honed too prior to fitting? I can't see any physical wear though! I'm just hoping the problem was the rings! Problem was similar to that of a failed reed valve but it doesn't have one as its a three port design! Apparently exhaust coming out of air intake!
The old rings seem really loose around the piston.

I personally wouldnt. Your technically removing a little more of the cylinder. I would put them in rebuild it and run in at a minimum of 50/1. I think its absolutely suicidal running motors at 100/1 even though the manufacturer says its ok. You wont see a difference much of a difference between running 50/1 and 100/1

Some rings have t1 and t2 writing on them.

T1 = 1 and facing upwards
T2 = 2 and facing upwards
Hope this helps

1N and 2N are printed on my rings (good spot, thanks). The 1N is green whilst the 2N is the black ring. Any ideas?

1n top and 2 n bottom writing facing crown of piston. Locate rings in piston lactate pins this so the rings won't spin a catch a port forward facing arrow pston to exhaust

Carburettor needs a good clean or check carb gasket or inlet for leakage.

Thanks for all the info, I will check for leaks! Just a thought as its air cooled should I be using a different premix oil or will standard quicksilver 2 stroke oil do the trick?

Yam man has helped out loads - so thanks to his advice the engine is now running. I have stripped down the carb and rebuilt it but it still won't accelerate. I can't find any air leaks - if I spray carb cleaner all around the carb it still idles on. Only when some gets into the air intake does it splutter.
I'm stuck for ideas now. If anyone fancies a go at fixing it I would be forever in their debt!
