So the rings wont work but the whole piston assembly should. Same crown height...

Re: Dear lord I need a source for Dykes Rings

Is there any room on the old piston to turn a new ring land for a regular ring.

Any luck on finding the 43mmx2mm l ring? I just shipped the last M01 polini kit I had and the kid that bought it broke the ring before ever installing it. This after I told him on the phone how rare this kit is.

before installing rings.. on such a old vintage kit. Use a heat gun to .. heat them a bit it will help not breaking them imo.

Yeah, got a whole piston and ring from freddy. I have an email from a guy who makes custom rings for RC planes and he can do them for something like $12 which is a hell of a deal if you ask me.

Thanks for the input, But I've searched & searched Ebay Italy.
