Product summary100 Year Logo[1]

pistonRingsThe Flex-Vent expander oil ring is energized by two steel rails, which receive uniform pressure from the expander to assure positive oil control. The three-piece design allows rails to be manufactured with a small cross-sectional area for better conformability to the bores of today’s low-tension, low-friction engines. The rails thin wall contact also allows for quick break-in time.

Hastings rails are normally chrome plated to resist wear and extend engine life.

Flex-Vent® rails are made of tough, wear resistant steel. The expanders are made of stainless steel.
