...but if you had that gap on the compression rings there might be reason for concern that the set is the wrong size.

Rings for a bore 10 thou smaller would have something like 45 thou gap.

Uhhh. right. Of course. Get it now; should've immediately. Pi x 0.10 ~= 0.031 then, + ~ 0.014" for correct gap = 0.045"

Thanks.
