Will rings stay seated if piston removed

I would like to remove a piston and inspect the rings. If rings are OK, can I put the piston back in, even if the rings turn a bit, and the rings will still be seated.

How much torque on a spindle nut

How much torque do you put on a front bearing spindle nut. I know you tighten it down till all the grease is out than back off to the next notch on the nut. But what if that next notch is to tight.

Re: pressurizing the radiator...

Re: 104 degrees 8BA ran good!

I do not believe it. Your temp gauge must be broken. No flathead runs that cool in the conditions you described.
