    I agree with you on the looks. It's pretty unsightly. I think I'll be doing your approach.

    I'm roughing in the piston now, and based on what I was reading over at Brian's Vertical Hit and Miss engine,
    https://www.homemodelenginemachinis...hit-and-miss-engine.31370/page-14#post-328819

    I thought I'd check into cast iron rings for this. The Webster drawings says:
    PISTON RINGS - 3/32" X .875"
    (2) REQD.

    The website doesn't work so does anyone know if Otto Gas Engine Works is still around? Where can I get these?
