Need piston rings

PostPost by: syrener » Thu Apr 23, 2020 1:03 pm

Hello,
Is someone out there stocking +0.020 piston rings ?
Most professionals are either closed or ran out of stock. I’m in Luxembourg.

Thank you

For engine parts I usually go to QED (no affiliation)

Deves Piston Rings in the US will custom make almost any size piston ring (although I last used them back in 2012)
but you need to provide full set of dimension information. Cost me $100 US for a full set at the time. Hope it helps.

I hope you have measured the width of the Ring grooves which also wear a lot.
Imho i would check the width to be sure you only need the Rings :wink: :wink:
