View Full Version : Piston Ring Orentation????????

02-16-2007, 04:44 AM

Hadn't been here in a while. Long story.

Getting to the point:

I am rebuilding my top end. I got my new Wiseco pistons and rings, I had the local shop fit my pistons to the newly boared cylinders. However in my excitement of finally getting all the parts to complete the rebuild I forgot to ask them about the piston ring gap orinetation.

I think it is something like: Oil ring at 8:00, bottom compression ring at 12:00, and top compression ring at 4:00 but I am not sure.

FYI - It is a 1340cc top end

the main thing is the gaps should not line up and the gaps are the right size for expansion
