Older pistons used different ring set than current piston and ring kit. I didn't have any luck finding an older ring set and bought a piston and ring kit. If I am remembering correctly, it was the oil ring that differed.

measure the ring, as the older bergs may have replaced their pistons with copy pistons. The copy pistons have different sized rings...narrower in my case!
