In my opinion not many of these old inboard engines are improved with new rings. If your existing rings are eliptical and they fit reasonably well before I would try to replace them with non eliptical modern rings I would make sure the compression is adequate for operation. I don't think simply replacing the eliptical rings with non eleptical rings will necessarily work better because the pressure of the expanded ring in the bore can produce serious stiffness in the piston cylinder wall. You can get piston rings from Dave Reed at OTTO@DOL.net. He is best reached via e-mail.
