Hey, so I'm in the process of rebuilding my engine and I ordered these piston rings. They say they're for our car, but after putting them in my cylinders, I realized the gaps are absolutely massive.
New ring on the right, old ring on the left. As you can see, the ring on the right has a giant gap. The gap on the left is about 0.015, for reference. Why is it so large? Am I doing something wrong?
This is what the website says for the rings I ordered. I didn't see this page until after ordering them. If .50mm is .020", then that means 1.50mm for the second group is .060"???? Why is it so massive?
Here's the box, if it helps.
