    I am in the process of replacing the piston rings for a Redmax ebz 8000 blower. Now i am wondering if there should be a proper piston ring alignment? where do the two gaps actually face?

    Well, since you did not post model and serial number I gotta guess here.
    Most 2 stroke engine pistons have pins in the ring groove that make it pretty obvious as to how the rings line up.
