I think your ring gaps are too tight but if that’s what AA said to use so be it. Side clearance is fine.
I don’t understand why you’re concerned with fitting pistons from the bottom of the cylinder. Just use a ring compressor like the one I made, pic up there ^ and push the cylinder over the piston -arrange the ring gaps to avoid the cut-outs in the cylinder.
With my pistons I don’t have a choice; the scraper ring covers the pin so I have to fit the piston to the rod before the rings and cylinders.
