The oil control ring has a circumferential spring. Inside the spring is a wire. Should this stay in or be removed? Never seen one before. Hepolite pistons.

Wonder how many people they employ to put the fake oily finger marks on the boxes wink

Stan, the spring and the wire stay installed with the ring. Do not install without them. Some of these oil rings have two separate thin rings that go above and below the spring in the oil ring groove of the piston. They are different from the one piece oil ring described by MarcB,.
