Reproduction 550 Fire Ring head gaskets?
« on: June 10, 2019, 09:37:15 AM »
Anyone interested in purchasing some reproduction 550 fire rings?  I'm looking at reproducing them, but would like to know if it will be worthwhile.  It looks like they would be priced around $35-$40 per pair.  They would be made of copper, and would be the same ID, OD, and thickness as the OEM fire rings.  They would be like most other aftermarket fire rings in that they would not have the indents in them.

I would be interested. If a lot of people buy them, then maybe the cost could be cut down.

Thanks Doug, I will put you down for 1 set. 

This is true, this pricing is based on the first 5 sets.  The larger the quantity, the better the pricing!

Steve, did you get the copper rings made yet? If so give me total cost with shipping.

I have not had them made yet.  I'm hoping as winter approaches we will get more interest.
