Hello all,

I'm in the middle of restoring a 1949-50 Verity Outboard, serial number 619 and have found that it had been previously assembled with one piston ring missing.

If anyone here can put me on to a potential supplier of vintage style small engine piston rings in Melbourne, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks & regards

I stumbled across these folk the other day, could be worth a try:
JP Pistons,
25-31 Innes Rd
Windsor Gardens
South Australia 5087
phone: +61 8 8261 7222
fax: +61 8 8261 9171
email: pistons@jp.com.au
website: http://www.jp.com.au

From their website:  "JP Pistons have Australia's largest range of loose piston rings. Our sizes range from 1.000" right up to 12 inches! Ring types include cast and chrome compression rings for four-stroke and two-stroke engines as well as plain oil (single piece cast iron) and multiple piece oil control rings.
All rings are available as individual rings or as engine sets."[/i][/i]

Thank you Slowpoke, I've been put on to a place in Mitcham (approx 20km's from home) so will give that a try first. The idea of being able to physically take a ring in and have it matched against a replacement is appealing. Failing that, I'll be on to your contact with the following pictorial of what I'm after.

Verity Rings

Ring Image - 1 of 2 identical rings per piston. Note bevel on Internal Face.

Ring - Width (between Upper & Lower Side Faces)

Ring - Radial Wall Thickness

Barrel / Cylinder Diameter

Piston Diameter

Piston Ring Seat / Groove Diameter

Also interesting to note is that although the the Verity and Riptide Fisherman comprise what is essentially the same engine (Riptide Fisherman is a remodeled/simplified for production Verity), the rings on the Riptide have smaller Width and Radial Wall Thickness dimensions.

Riptide Fisherman Rings

Will let you know how I get on.

Thanks again & Regards,
