Piston Rings

Derek Williams

Recommended Posts


Im trying to restore an OS FS 48 that wasn’t performing as good as it used to.

I discovered that the piston ring had jammed in its groove and proved impossible to get out without breaking it.

so I need to replace it and was horrified at the cost of an OS ring and remembered reading on this site about someone that manufactured rings.

can you help me with any contact information or maybe you have a ring knocking around?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have just tried to look up the site I recommended in my last post and its appears closed !!!😧. I have messaged the seller to see if they will be continuing to supply parts .

I used his products on a few occasions as it was far quicker and easier to buy a piston ring from him than it is to make them . If he has packed up it looks like ill have to fire up the lathe more often !!

Thank for putting GC piston ring web address up. For one dreadful minute I thought that we had lost a trusted member of our ever decreasing spares suppliers. 

I have made many piston rings over the years but to be honest G C rings are so good and at his prices its not worth the hassle of making them .

Glad you got sorted Derek.
