Default new rings, new cylinder, or boring & rebuild?

Judging by the slop in my piston (see the video) I see why i don't had 60 psi of compression. Now the question. Do I just replace the rings, buy a complete overhaul kits(jug piston etc) or go i get it bored out and put an over sized piston. The piston has slop in it, i didn't put a filler gauge to see how much. What do you guys think, The cylinder walls look good, no scratches etc.

The piston has some play but it would be good to pull the piston, properly checking piston to wall clearance, cylinder taper and ridge, piston/ring condition and gaps, etc... before buying parts.

If you do some searching online for your model number of cart you should be able to find a service manual or if you can let the group know here the exact model of your cart they may have this readily available. Either way, this forum should be able to help.

I was looking and i can get a complete kit for like $186 that is almost just a cheap as buying piston kit, and a gasket set then having someone bore the cylinder.
