Wiseco - early piston ring ID help. was created by yamayeeha

Just trying to understand the differences between piston rings for early red box wiseco pistons from the 70's.

L - is one L shaped ring
LC - is 2x rings (from ebay pictures) one L shaped and one other.
LS - I have a box with 1x L shaped ring only - What does the S stand for?
LCS - is 2x rings

Should my LS box have 2x rings?
Can I use the L shaped ring from the the LC/LCS ring sets?

My piston only has one L shaped groove at the top.
Any input greatly appreciated.

PS: I am over OEM piston size.

the only experience I have is with the LC rings and they are in my RT1M and RT1MX engines. you might try calling Wiseco and ask them about these part numbers. I called them some years back when I was looking for rings for ring part numbers for my 060 over RT1MX engine and they gave me the part numbers then I found a set on Ebay and purchased them.

Phone number is 440-951-6600
