Simple test on the rings is to install them in the bore & measure end gap. A minimum & maximum gap should be in the engine specs.

Rich,
Like John said, check the fit. If good use them. To quickly seat them, hold a teaspoon of borax in front of the intake manifold and let it feed into the engine slowley while running about 1/3 throttle. ( an old trick, taught me by a well respected Case Service rep.) We had problems with new tractors sold in fall that went onto manure spreaders for the winter. (never got warmed up, and never worked. They glazzed the cylinders.) The Borax deglazzed the cylinders and seated the rings.

never heard of using borax, you sure you don't mean Bon-Ami? I wouldn't introduce any abrasives into an engine unless needed, a honed cross hatch pattern ought to allow the rings to seat without it

Doug,
Point well taken on cylinders freshly rebored and crosshatched. I'm sure you know how much damage can be caused in a new or fresh engine, if it was religated to spreader duty in the fall and never allowed to really get up to temp. and never really worked. Complaints usually ocured in spring, when the tractors were hooked to tillage equipment, and didn't have the power they had when sold. Yes Borax was an abraisive, and it cut the glaze on cylinders and rings. A teaspoon full, normally did the job, in 188s, 267s and 301s

I bought a 2-105 White some years ago that had a recent oh, it was ran on jd plus 50 oil from the start and it was an oil user, I always wanted to give it some Bon-Ami but was scared to.

Caterpillar used to sell an abrasive to put in intake to reseat rings. Ajax will do the same thing.
