Question about Cars & Trucks
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
