Could you elaborate Irk on "inch of bore"?
My Chevy sbc 350 engine has a 4.00" bore, so minimum ring gap is .016". I gap at .018". The 823 is 65mm pistons, which is 2.56" bore, so .010". I would gap to .012". Here's the chart from Wiseco:Jimbonaut said:Could you elaborate Irk on "inch of bore"?
Usually, the top ring is chrome/brighter on it's edge while the second ring is usually black or darker. The beveled ring is usually the second ring and the bevel faces down as an oil scraper. The top compression ring usually doesn't have a bevel.Jimbonaut said:Cheers mate, that’s a huge help. I’m working on them now, one more question. The top ring has a slight bevel on the outside face, whereas the lower ring doesn’t, and has a slight slanted face, right?
