A general rule of thumb for ring gap is .003 " per 1" of bore. Example 4" bore minimum gap at bottom of cylinder for the ring is .012". IF fitting new rings then push the ring to the bottom of the bore ( smallest dia.) and measure the gap . nothing under .010". Max ring gap at this point should not exceed m.025" and if the gap exceeds this then the sides of the rings will have sharp edges from wearing on the piston lands.. The distance travelled depends on the service interval and the air cleaner being used as a dusted motor will need new rings within 15.000miles. and a well serviced motor can exceed 150.000miles before the rings need replacing

Ring end gaps for B&S 31P777 engine


If the engine the figures are required for is a re-ring using the original pistons it is important to check the amount of wear of the bore and of the piston groove clearance.

Once the ring gap is set to the minimum at an unworn part of the cylinder bore the gap should be rechecked at the most worn part and if the gap exceeds the maximum it indicates an excessively worn cylinder bore.
While this is not immediately detrimental it does mean the piston ring grooves will wear much more quickly and the job will have a shorter life and in some cases a high oil consumption can be worsened.

The piston ring groove clearance - side clearance between the ring and the piston should be 0.0015 inch maximum. It can be expected the top groove could be considerably worn and in that case new pistons would be beneficial or a Cord ring set.

Ring gap


Ring gaps vary with the year and make of the engine. There is no one fits all number. The engine overhaul manual will give you the information you need.

Sounds like you may have a bad piston ring. Get a compression test done and that will tell you if the ring is bad or not. Also, try using a product called seafoam in your engine. The seafoam will clean your engine out very well.

The valve stem oil seals sound like theyre worn and oil is getting past the vlaves and been burnt in the combustion chamber,once the valve stem oil seals are replaced it should cure your problem as with only 57k kms the piston rings shouldnt be worn yet.
