Hastings, MI (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Hastings Manufacturing Company, LLC, a nearly 100-year-old maker of piston rings and inventor of the Flex-Vent® Oil Control Ring, announces the release of its new 2009 Master Piston Ring Catalog. Featuring the broadest offering of piston ring applications available to the engine aftermarket, the Hastings 2009 Catalog includes stock oil and compression piston rings for virtually every engine type, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, agriculture, compressors, marine, and performance racing -- gasoline or diesel -- domestic and international.
Hastings 2009 Master Ring Catalog, written in English, French and Spanish, organizes piston ring types by application, numerical set, and diameter. This makes it easy to search by either engine manufacturer and bore size, Hastings part number, or ring diameter. Over 10,000 applications are offered, an enormous coverage relative to other piston ring manufacturers. Cross-reference tables are also provided by competitor piston rings-to-Hastings piston rings, or manufacturer's pistons-to-Hastings piston rings, adding to the catalog's easy-to-search functionality. Other helpful information includes how-to's on selecting the correct oversize rings and measuring cylinder oversizes, plus tips are offered on checking compression ring gaps and bearing clearances.
Last released in 2006, the 2009 Master Piston Ring Catalog offers a much broader selection of applications, including the new line of Hastings Tough Guy Racing Rings for domestic and import engines. Hastings Tough Guy Racing Rings are available in three product groups, Claimer Cast, Premium Ductile, and Steel, each serving increasing levels of engine performance.
