Petter A1 Piston Rings

I am restoring a PETTER A1 stationary engine and whilst inspecting the pistons I found that one of the piston was broken.

Does anyone have an old one or know where I could get one?

Whilst not for a Petter I had success in getting a ring for an obscure compressor from :

F.W. Thornton & Co. in Shrewsbury.

If you know the size / specification it might be worth giving them a call.

If you are stuck give this guy a try, he`s local to me and seems to be able to do whatever you want.

I haven't dealt with them for a long time but Bradford Piston Ring Company used to give a very good service. They say "Established in 1935 we are proud to be the most experienced manufacturers of PISTON RINGS in the UK" Try
