Where to get standard piston rings?

Post by imp-aus-ter » Fri Aug 28, 2015 4:52 pm

I have been looking for some standard 875 piston rings for ages.... cant find any? Everything else, just not pistons/rings?

Any ideas?

50% of his stock isnt mentioned most of the time, and he can always seem to help with something suitable,

Cheers mate... I will contact you.... but not right now, it is 4:45am here and for some reason I am feeling a bit sleepy :shock: :lol:

That element is a weird one? It looks like it is solid? Naturally, I had to block the far end with my hand and blow thru it to see if air went thru it.... :roll: yes it did, and I ended up with a nice black ring around my lips that tasted like unleaded petrol.... DoH!! :shock: I cant understand people sniffing that stuff?? Super (with lead) tasted much, much better ....

Hi Malcolm, I spoke to Frank today and he said you are sending him some stuff and my bits can come in that, if that is ok by you.... so I will organise it before then, I will need a couple of sets of std rings and will grab that block breather filter :) I will get Frank to organise it with you, so it will be no hassle (especially for me hehehehe) :D
