It needs to be broken in. It's not going to seal up until the rings wear into the cyclinder.

How would you get it to start with only 60 psi?

barely, it needs a lil layer of oil on the cylinder walls to help seal the gaps in the rings. Another squirt or two of oil won't hurt.
Make sure you have fresh gas and clean carb.

Ok , that's a new one! How did you get a 76mm piston into a 75mm hole????? It has to be a 75mm piston in a 75mm hole or the other way around. I believe the wrong rings were included. Happens a lot.

I'm sorry this how it goes... Part number on piston matches to 75mm, piston size matches to 74.5mm and it was in a 76mm box
