Piston ring gapping


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm rebuilding a late mk2 Vitesse engine to go on my gt6, having had the machine work done on the block I'm a little confused about the ring gapping, it would appear I have gaps of .45mm in the rings on the cylinders, the technical books I've read basically say max .30mm can anyone confirm these sizes for me? Machine shop says that they are as good as the quality of the rings (county) and not to worry, (they would say that)

Any feedback greatly appreciated.
