Piston Rings

PostPost by: jono » Sat Feb 17, 2018 9:45 pm

I managed to break a piston ring when taking apart my engine. :(

Does any one know if you can buy a single ring or single piston ring set - it's the lower compression ring with the stepped bottom edge on a +40 TC engine.

Or...does anyone have a spare one per chance?

Cheers

Jack Bottomleys used to have a ring/piston measuring machine and I haven't but if these are any good to you?

F W Thornton will sell you a single ring Jon, but you will have to give them exact measurements, or send them your broken ring.

Kindest regards,
