t35 rings 1946
« on: 23 Jan 2019 at 00:24 »
has anyone dealt with a ebay uk store called imdpistons , bloke called Adrian ,order a set of rings before xmas , heard nothing until I enquired about 1 week ago and being given the run around since ,because asked about a later set of rings first before ordering and paying for a mk 1 and 11 set , said was waiting on me to get back to him as the later set were the wrong ones ??? which I knew, been back and forth since .. keep saying i want the ones for the mk1/11 1946/47 350cc , and he keeps asking am I sure their the ones I want ??? don't know whats going on but seems strange .. his store has sold a lot of items (profectional) with a good rating , don't know if should persist or go for a refund

I have just gone to their website and they give no contact details for the company ( other than they are based in Cheshire). It would appear they are another company dealing on the internet that only gives enough information for the customer to deposit money with them, but not enough to retrieve it should a deal fall through. The only advice seems to be - steer clear, dont get conned!

On a more practical note - Mk3-5 compression rings will fit (they have butt joints instead of scarfed joints, and you may need to fit 2 rings per groove if your pistons have 1/8" wide grooves). Also, I believe the oil rings (5/32" wide) are the same as in the Dragonfly.

  An alternative supplier in the UK is: Cox and Turner (sorry,I don't have their contact details - usually see them at autojumbles).

  Regards,
                 Eddie.

Iíve had rings from JP pistons for my Velocette.
Arrived in four days at $14 each + p & p.
They will sell single rings if thatís all you need.
Cheers Eddie

thanks will give jp a try next time , mainly gave this other bloke a try as was on the uk fleabay site to see what t35 parts were around (as you know not much in oz) and spotted the rings and a full gasket kit from another bloke (which I got) any other suggestions for vintage parts sites /shops in aust would be great , up to date xs650 is the earlies bikes iv owned / worked on for yrs so parts wise a bit of a learning curve
