Oil ring question


Recommended Posts

So the ring sets I got with my new pistons (Spitfire 1500) have got me stumped.


The top 2 rings are straight forward.

But the oil ring packet contains 4 parts (I was expecting 3!) 

Of the 4 parts it's clear which are the top and bottom (thin) rings and which is the centre part (the 3 bits on the left), but what's the shaped piece of spring steel? (on the right in the red box)

Cheers, Sam
