TOTAL SEAL PISTON RINGS 3.947
- Model : PISTON RINGS
Total Seal’s patented Gapless ® Piston rings provide increased performance through unmatched sealing of the cylinder and combustion gasses in the combustion chamber. Increased horsepower and torque along with longer engine life are just a couple of the reasons why these piston rings are the best available. Here are many more. Call us to place your order. Increased horsepower and torqueTotal Seal - Performance Unlimited Longer engine life Saves money (fewer teardowns) Improved consistency Cleaner engine oil Longer ring life Better Oil control Less friction Lower engine oil temperatures Wider torque curve More engine vacuum Increased intake signal HOW THEY WORK total seal ring installation As shown in the illustration, compression gas is deflected by the rail into the piston groove and aid in pressure loading the ring throughout the 4 stroke cycle. Simultaneously the rail also and most importantly closes off the combustion gas leak path created by the ring end gap. This gap is the primary cause of blow-by in a 4 cycle engine. With a conventional type ring as the ring and cylinder wear the ring end gap increases and the blow-by figures increase. The Gapless® ring blow-by figures are not affected by this wear, as the ring end gap increases it is blocked by the rail portion of Total Seals patented interlocking 2 piece design stopping the blow-by at the source. Conventional style rings when newly installed will show leak down figures of 7% or higher these figures can quickly exceed 20% or higher after a surprisingly short period of time. Gapless® rings on the other hand when newly installed typically show leak down figures of 2% and lower and should remain the same throughout the life of the engine. Piston Ring Function... Sealing for Horsepower. There are three leak paths for blow-by to escape past the piston into the crankcase and we all know that any blow-by leaking past the piston is horsepower lost.
