    i have the Haynes Manual for Escorts but not the more detailed Chilton?
    what are the bore multipliers for compression rings Top,Bottom and the

    Oil controler, to find your GAPs? ie.. 3.23" (bore) x .0045 (multiplyer)
    equals .014535" for Top compression ring GAP. this is for a scort 1.9L.

    dont think ive ever personally heard anything called a multiplier myself, i may just be ignorant to that info.. i have always just put a ring into the cyl, measured gap and filed as required.

    thz Marclar for looking in, i respect your inputs since you are an experienced Escort Resurrectionist. i was simply trying to find out what were the calculations or measurements that ppl were using for the 3 end gaps on a 1.9L scorts' rings.

    i wanted to know the different ways that things are done by the locals. and, having a little time on my hands i thought i would try the bore x .0045(street) thing. however, if you just post the 3 ring gap numbers then i ll be more than thankful. headmn
