What are the specs on the rings in a Studebaker V-8? I'm not asking about the diameter but the thickness of each ring in order to give the correct information to Total Seal so I'll get the right stuff. Thanks,

Darryl, I am thinking you would have to contact a Piston Ring manufacturer technical Dept. that makes Stude. rings like Grant, etc. for those, since Studebaker would have no need to mention the thickness, since all 3 9/16" Std. or oversize ring sets are made to fit all 1955-64 Stude. V-8's except '64 Avanti & Jet Thrust 304.5
R3 & R4. and you just order them. I understand why you need it, but I checked Grant's site with no luck, you need to call.
