if the liner slipped far enough that the ring was catching on the top lip of the liner, it could pull the top of the piston off as the piston comes down and the ring doesn't feel like moving.

No Not at all----it is liked it Melted----If the liner allowed the compression to blow air into water jacket then what would happen---although their is no real air coming out of the system---But it does over heat--but may not be connected.

The only evidence of actual stuff was a piece of ring--1" long that got past exhaust valve and stuck in valve port area---
