1.3 TU2J2 75mm Piston Ring Set, Where to buy?

I've looked everywhere and can't find a piston ring set for the TU2J2.

As far as I know they're 75mm, 1st 3.00, 2nd 2.00, 3rd 1.75.

My oil reeks of petrol and my dipstick keeps popping out. I'm hazarding a guess that it's the rings.

Are you sure you need 1st 3.00, 2nd 2.00, 3rd 1.75? As that is a normal size for most 1.4 engines. I can't remember the right thicknesses right now, but I know that we had to choose two different sized sets to make the correct comination.

If the 1.75,2.00,3.00 are correct then Goetze 08-154400-00 are the correct rings.

Check it here:

We have RS206 IN “ NPR “made in GERMANY rings. The ring formation thickness is;
Top 1.75mm - middle 2.00mm - oil 3.00mm

That's what KarEngine.co.uk emailed me when I enquired. Hopefully it's not wrong as I have them ordered!

Checked that site there too, they don't list rings for the TU2J2 engine :/ http://fmecat.com/selProd2.asp?make=...3~TU2J2&litre= &prdgrp=4&langID=1&engseal=0

I have really bad experience with NPR europe rings. The worst made rings I have ever seen. The ends are not straight and you need to file both ends which is really trick operation.
I would advise Mahle, Goetze or Kolbenschmidt.

Thanks Drmo. I'll ring them here and see if the parcel has been posted yet. They were only £50 inc vat.

Tried Peugeot direct? They are usually very good for getting the right parts if you give them your chassis number.

Tried ringing Charles Hurst Belfast there but couldn't get a hold of anyone. I emailed them asking for a price for a genuine gasket (0209.L1) and headbolts. I didn't ask about the rings as they're down as NFP on servicebox. If they reply to my email I'll enquire about them though.

I hope you get the pre-gaped rings as those might be ok. I was using their oversize option - 75.5mm for a race engine i was building, and they didn't come pre-gaped.

bump up, I still haven't got a set of rings! I cancelled the NPR ones after drmo's experience and haven't had any luck since.

I may have to just swap out the bottom end for a VTR unit.

Cheers Freddy! 133 euro for a set of rings though, that's extortionate!

Conditionnement : jeu pour 4 pistons
…paisseur des segments : 1,50 / 1,50 / 3,00
Type moteur : TU5J4 / TU2J2

Also says the rings do the TU2 and the J4 engine :/ Surely that is incorrect.

I did a research for you as I forgot what we used in my engine.
Goetze rings for 206 1.4i TU3JP (Goetze 08-138900-00) have 1st and 2nd rings in 1.50mm, but the 3rd is 2.50mm so you will need another set that has 3mm oil ring. You can use rings for 106 1.4 TU3 (Goetze 08-154400-00) for the the 3rd ring.
Combined it is still cheaper than buying those from France, for which the site says, are not in stock. These Goetze rings are available everywhere.

Drmo, you're a legend. Thank you.

I'm glad I didn't buy those NPR rings now as they were 1.50, 1.75 and 3.0.

I've a VTR block gathered up here, so I'm going to pull the head off the rallye, put it on the VTR block and run that for a while whilst I rebuild the TU2 block.

Thanks again!

happy that I could help , in case that you will need to buy 8 sets of rings in order to have one correct it will cost you more then the set that I suggested.
average price of a set for one piston is about 20 EUR if you need to buy 8 then its not that cost efficient .

They are actually a lot cheaper that that...
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232091668407
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232075164842

Total: £77.40 + postage

Still cheaper than a brand I never heard of and with questionable quality. I know Goetze and the quality is really good.

Ok, I researched a little bit more as I forgot if the thicknesses were correct. They are. The correct piston rings are:
1st: 1.50mm
2nd: 1.50mm
3rd: 3.00mm

Source peugeot sport catalogue (page 6):
http://www.peugeotsport-store.com/cm...8dd842bbb6.pdf

So if anyone is still searching for TU2J2 piston rings they can use a combination of two sets Goetze rings (or equivalent):
Goetze rings for 206 1.4i TU3JP (Goetze 08-138900-00) - 1st and 2nd rings
Goetze rings for 106 1.4 TU3 (Goetze 08-154400-00) - 3rd rings

Or like Freddy suggested:
http://retrautosport.com/catalogue-p...-3-rallye.html

I prefer a tried and tested option, which is Goetze, Mahle or Kolbenscmidt. I use NPR (brown box) rings only on Honda engines, and with great success.

Drmo, thank you again! I'm going to go down to my local parts store and ask if they can assist with the piston ring sizes above. Hopefully they'll have something in stock or can flick through their catalogue and find a set that would do.

Been staring at parts catalogues all morning. I fondly remember someone mentioning that some type of mazda piston rings fit the 1.3 TU2J2 engine.

After hours of searching, I found out that the Mazda MX-3 (323) 1.8 V6 24v (K819 engine) uses the same rings! 75,00mm diameter, 1.50, 1.50 & 3.00.

I'm going to have a wee hunt about for those as then I'd have two spare sets, lol.

I found those rings for Mazda 1.8 V6 quite hard to find and expensive. Maybe you'll have more luck.
