Piston ring question?
Posted by: toms73novass ()

Are these usable?



I picked up a .060 engine with pistons, cylinders etc and these total seal rings were in the kit.

They indicate 3.622 bore diameter, obviously .125 of a diameter off from .060

Can the ring ends be trimmed down to make them fit or are they too oversized to be used?

That is what I figured, looks like they are for a 92mm 3.0L big bore engine.

I've just discovered piston rings from old Mopar flathead six cylinder engines fit early model (145ci) Corvairs.

Example: [www.ebay.com]

Yes, I bought a set ....and they do fit perfectly.
