Does anyone know which way the ring in an OS 50 should face? Does it matter? Thanks

Cathman,

I think you'll find that there's a little pin that fits into the gap in the ring so you have no choice. If you mean which way up it should face, I don't think it makes a difference.

cheers

If its new it doesn't matter. Just so the pin lines up with the gap.

If its the one you have been using it should go back in the way it came out.

Hmmmm

Well the reason i ask is that i just got my Raptor 50 going and on the third tank...breaking it in still...the motor just stopped....thankfully i had just started it and was slowly idling it up warming it up.

Anyway, came home and pulled it out and the ring exploded on one side. Almost looks like the gap in the ring got caught in a port of the engine. Anyway, my piston and ring, and sleeve is had. I plan on calling tomorrow to see what OS will do for me being it was a new engine.

I will post some pics later for your viewing pleasure .

It's likely that the "pin" came adrift and let the ring rotate into one of the ports
