Will the JE 98mm piston rings work with Max Moritz pistons?

As the title says, I see Pelican offers 98mm JE piston rings for cheaper than I paid for TotalSeal conventional rings for my FLATTOP Max Moritz pistons.

Will these work? I assume yes, but wanted to confirm.

PN: JE-612U6-3858

Wanted to order soon, or I would have measured everything to confirm.

TIA

I think you will have to machine the pistons unless they already use the same size rings,

Max Moritz 98mm pistons which I had in the past used a ring pack which is 1.2 x 1.2 x 3.0mm and it is difficult to find rings to suit.

The Mahle Motorsport version of this piston uses a 1.0 x 1. x 2.0 mm ring pack.

I think JE use NPR Rings which are good.

I don't have flat tops, but I was cracking rings on my 100mm with rings that came with my JE 9.5:1,

single plug hemi head location and 8 psi boost don't help, lol.

I had Total Seal figure out what I needed, they were worth every penny and the tech support was great.

I have a most complete set low mileage Mahle, I think there was one broken in the set.
I had to buy a full set of totalseal for the one broken OE

If it were a Ford on Chevy, you could have bought one.

Porsche tax!

Reviving an old thread since I'm currently doing a top-end rebuild on my 3.2 Max Moritz conversion.

I'm at the least page of the internet, and found nothing yet?!

Did you guys find the piston rings anywhere or do I order from Total Seal?

Thanks!

Nux,

I would give EBS Racing a call. They will be able to give you the scoop on the rings for your pistons.

Yep, what I did before.

I only started the thread because I saw the JE rings are much cheaper than my custom TotalSeal's I got from EBS.
