#1 Hepolite Ring Set # 2555

Post by mxke » Tue Dec 08, 2020 1:47 am

I was digging thru some parts I have and came across this ring set.
Would these be for a 3.4 litre engine?
Thanks,
Mike

That bore is consistent with both the 3.4 and 2.4 liter versions of the XK engine. But as to ring thickness and count, and therefore compatibility with specific pistons, I think you will need to find some Hepolite documentation to give you a definitive answer as to which specific application they are for.

Hi Mike,

All I can tell you from my Mk2 manual is that 3.2677 is the size of the cylinder bores of the 2.4 and 3.4 Mk2.

The 3.8 is 3.4252.

Hepolite are not standard fit pistons, at least not on the Mk2, Brico is.
