    piston rings

    I ordered new rings, but they are too thick- don't fit in the grooves. Is it possible to use the old rings? I've honed the glaze off the cylinder.

    I've de-glazed for used rings before. Just be sure the ring gap is still within spec, and the ccylinder is in usable condition.

    piston rings

    I don't have any pictures. I'm going to use the old rings. The cylinders and the rings are in great shape. Thanks

    Did you have the rings the right side up? in some pistons, the rings won't fit if they are upside down.
