Gapless Rings Increase Engine Life
"The design puts two rings in the same groove so end gaps overlap, reducing compression gases leaking into the crankcase," Wallace says.
Installing the gapless rings on an engine reduces ring leakage to 2% or less, increases manifold vacuum, improves cold starts, ex-tends oil changes, raises compression tests more than a point, and increases fuel mile-age and decreases cooling requirements.
The rings are available for almost any engine including farm tractors (antique also), chain saws, snowmobiles, 18-wheelers, and automobiles. They're available for both gas and diesel engines.
Total Seal rings generally run about 60% more than ordinary piston rings. An information package, including a sample ring, is available for $15.50.
