Please share if someone has used the blueish plastic large pistonring coming with repair kits Gates 350500 and 351100. Outer diameter seems to be ok but both width and thickness are
imo too small. If you use a o-ring from the kit as a backup ring the thickness issue is eliminated but still the plastic ring is loose in the groove sideways.
Comments , please!

I got 2 units repaired in eastern Finland. What the repair guy said was that if original piston ring is good, then it is no need to change it. He also told me the same thing about plastic rings being out of size, and he uses them only if original ring is gone.

No problem. If you want, I can send contact information so you can discuss directly with him. He helped me a lot with my units, from which I destroyed the first one by myself by acting like maniac.
