    So, I guess some of you have been following the saga of Beryl and the suspected stick piston ring.

    I found some 2200TC piston rings on eBay. When they arrived they turned out to be Cords rings with that odd cupped style rings for the second compression ring. I’ve read on other forums they can cause more wear over time.

    The bores on the car are in excellent condition with no measurable wear. Has anybody had experience other cords they can share?

    intended to help seal pistons in worn bores they were known for increasing bore wear

    And as if by magic a genuine BL NOS set appears on EBay today. Snapped them up already. I looked everywhere last week.
