Trev,
It did not seem to look like a very coarse grit, as I was only trying to remove the glaze from a couple of hours idling. The grit size was not listed on the package. The appearance after honing looked great.
It is the first motor I have ever had problems with regarding smoke.

I must agree with Bergs, the improvement with the Gandinis was immediate and dramatic.

Let me know if you find any. FWT say they dont have them and Gandini's site doesnt respond.

Have you tried the contact details on the advice note which I posted last week?
Can't believe I got the last set, and even if I did, they should be prepared to order some more for you.

bergs..  I like that HEPITITIS to describe a brand of poorly performing parts. I suppose Hepolitis would cover the mental affliction we all get when the contents of the pack just don't live up to the promise and experience you thought you would get. Could be applied to more than a few pattern parts.

I usually get my rings from Total Seal.
zgood thing is they will supply a single ring if you happen to break one.
However you must tell them exactly want you want.

...and now for an embarrassment of riches. Having cast around in several directions for rings, some more have shown up. They just arrived from Denmark this morning. They are in individual wrappers in a (really) old Hepolite ring box, the top rings are Vacrom and labelled as such, the box is labelled:

Original & Hepolite Pistons
1954/7, 646cc, O.H.V.
FH Huntmaster C.R. 7.25.1
70mm/2.7559" + 040"

and on the flap:
3650/#V + 040" ARIEL TYPE

I make no claims for their authenticity nor suitability. But you are welcome to them for the price I paid plus postage, say £25 in all. First to PM me gets the set.

Seems I can get a set of German made ones from a parts place just around the corner. Might go with that.
