Like everything else, it depends on how much there is. Some like a thou, some like a thou and a half.

I would say that the least amount feasible is about right. No reason to let the ring start moving any more than it has to.

Is additional axial clearance a bad thing with 2nd and oil grooves? Total Seal didn't seem real bothered with additional there.
As much as .0025” on a beveled 2nd ring, and as much as .004” on a flex vent style oil ring didn’t hurt performance.
