The telltale sign will be the dirt thats gotten thru to the air filter adapter. I used to buy inexpensive filters and change them to new filters regularly but there was always a trace of dust in the adapter. Switched to Walker filters and the trace dirt vanished. Theyre expensive new but we are able to, with strict maintenance, run them a long while.

On my opens, I gapped rings, top .004 x size of bore, 2nd .006 x size of bore

Making sure the cylinder has no taper and is honed with the correct stones and plateau finished is of great importance. Maybe the problem isn't rings or endgap, but the cylinder itself.
