OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

DEVES Piston Rings, 96mm Bore, 1.5mm Top, 1.75mm Middle, 4mm Oil, Set of 4
DEVES Piston Rings, 96mm Bore, 1.5mm Top, 1.75mm Middle, 4mm Oil, Set of 4


 
DEVES Piston Rings, 96mm Bore, 1.5mm Top, 1.75mm Middle, 4mm Oil, Set of 4 are the finest piston rings you can get for your VW or Porsche Engine! Painstakingly made from the highest quality Swedish Steel, Deves rings break in FAST and DO NOT LEAK! "Deves" is pronounced "Dev-ess", not "Deevz" LOL! This ring set was originally used on some 96mm Big Bore kits for Type 4 Engines. There are several versions of the 96mm piston rings, you MUST CHECK YOUR RING THICKNESSES VERY CAREFULLY!

We have been selling and using Deves rings for a long time, and feel they are BY FAR THE BEST RINGS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR AIR COOLED ENGINE! Instead of taking 500-1000 miles to break in (blow by, oil usage, overheating, etc), they are often fully broken in after 5-10 MINUTES of run-time on the engine stand or in the garage! If you have ever fought with trying to break in Mahle, Grant, or Total Seal rings, you will REALLY appreciate these, especially if you have ever had to go through the headache of an engine with rings that won't break in properly!

This is a set of 12 rings to do one 4 cylinder engine. Note these are available in Standard Bore, as well as .020" (.5mm) and .040" (1mm) over-bores!

The Material -

The finest Swedish steel is used, from the masters in advanced metallurgy, in a special composition alloy, designed for high heat transfer, high flexibility and low wear rates. These are characteristics yield performance that are unmatched by any other line of piston rings - American or Foreign!

The Design -

Deves rings and ring sets are based on detailed engineering drawings as well as actual engines. All Deves rings are checked for fit by a specially-designed light-beam microscope (if light doesn't get through, neither will oil or compression!), and they meet or exceed all SAE, DIN, and BNA standards.

The Features -

  • All Deves rings (Compression, Scraper, and Oil control) are made in the necessary lengths and widths, and in various thickness' to ensure the proper tension against the cylinder walls.Not One Size Fits None like some other brands!
  • Expander rings are slotted to prevent any possibility of clogging.
  • Oil rings consist of two laminated rings, which sit at the top and bottom of the groove, separated by a spacer, and also contact an expander ring.
  • Scraper rings use an expander ring under the scraper to provide proper tension.
