Enter the bore size (in) into the Ring Gap Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Ring Gap.

## Ring Gap Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Ring Gap.

RG = BS * .004

Variables:

• RG is the Ring Gap (in)
• BS is the bore size (in)

To calculate a ring gap, multiply the bore size by .004.

## How to Calculate Ring Gap?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ring Gap.

1. First, determine the bore size (in).
2. Next, gather the formula from above = RG = BS * .004.
3. Finally, calculate the Ring Gap.
4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bore size (in) = 3.5

RG = BS * .004 = ?
