Hastings Rings

I have a set of rings, but no instructions.

Am I right in assuming the one with reverse torsional twist is the scraper (second groove) and the plain ones are the first groove? Dimple towards top of piston?

Re: Hastings Rings

the top and second rings are different i think, mine one had a chamfer that had to go a certain way. do they have dimples on them, if they do they go up allways i think.

Re: Hastings Rings

Top ring has dimple on top but otherwise is the rectangular section ring the second usually either hastings is a tapered scraper which goes sharp edge down. If they have marks then they go up.
