    Due to my good buddy (!) installing iron rings in a non-chrome cylinder, I find myself in need of a full set of standard or .005 oversize chrome piston rings for my O-290-D.

    Any good leads will be appreciated - can't find a copy of Trade-A-Plane anywhere!

    I'm just glad that it did not result in cylinder scuffing. Hopefully, bead-blasting the pistons and installing new rings will cure my 20/70 compression!

    You might try P/n 2c6620 standard ring for a Mack truck. Call 209 529 8016 to see if they have .005 over. $297

    Thanks for the idea, Bob. I found some ECi rings which will do the job. They were $77 per set.
