Step 5

Now we will use go/no-go gauge to make sure that the ring was compressed correctly. At first start with the go portion and slide that over the ring. If the go side goes over, the ring is compressed correctly. It is good to ensure that the ring was not over compressed.
The other side, no-go portion, make sure that it does not go. If it does not go over the ring, the ring was not over compressed.
