The aluminum tapered ring compressors work the best for me.

Ditto... spend the money and get the solid one for your engine bore. Beats them BAND POS 1000 times over. Wont break a ring, of fuck up your oil scraper package.

Yes,that shouldn't be a problem. I will never use anything else ever again. They are close to $50 but worth every cent imo.

Rick Brown approved...good enough for me Cool . ARP for $78 on sale (Amazon I believe) for $61.05 (4.390). Anyone know where I can get one cheaper. Dumb, dumb question but my bore is 4.391, I assume the 4.390 compressor is the right one?!! Rolling Eyes Embarassed

Terry,I have one for 4.390,you can borrow it. I have a assortment of them for a common BBF bores.I picked one up at the fall Swap 4.600 for $10.(ARP)

I haven't bought a new one for about 3 yrs.I think the last one I bought was just under $50.They must of took a huge jump in price.Still worth it imo.

Just ordered the Akerly & Childs 4.390, $50 and some change. Didn't want to mess with the "free trial offer" B.S. so I had to pay full price plus shipping Evil or Very Mad .

Hey Rick, good news...your ring compressor is still safe Smile
