Rings

OK, here's the deal, i was putting the rings on the pistons when snap, one sinking compression ring (also happened to the be the last ring i was putting on) broke. I called the shop that's been supplying me with parts and they said that they can't get me individual ring set for each piston, they can only get entire sets for the engine. So i need a goetze ring set for one piston (or one top compression ring would be better), anyone know where i can get that instead of a whole engine set?

The answer is: Pelican parts sells per cylinder. The dealers rip you off in a big way at 6 times the price. Have a look in the pelican catalog.

Hey wayne, can you help me out here? I can only find the rebuild kit with the entire ring set, not individual.

OH, nevermind, i gave a call to pelican and your salesman by the name of darren was really patient and helped me out. Not just with the piston ring set for one piston, but also for other stuff. Top notch gentleman.
