Measure what you need and then try Otto Engine in the advertisers section or others in same section.

The part number for std rings is AA7-A-3060. There are at least 3 sets of OEM rings on ebay right now. Just search for "continental aa7". $16.58. I have some aftermarket rings, including some oversize, if you cannot make a connection. Which model do you have? AA7 or AU7? Good luck.

It is a AA7B spec # 201 and a 2.125 bore. I have a maintenance manual, but does not give torque values for con rod or cylinder head. Would like some help here and thanks for all the help.

Here is more than you wanted to know. Spec No 201 was supplied to Globe Corp for their Globester motor scooter. It is an AA7B with no governor, Watts magneto, Zenith carburetor or (AA7F-4480), kick starter clutch assy, (2 qt tank furnished by Globe Corp). Do you have a Globester? If you still have the original Zenith carburetor, you will need to know the assembly number to get the right parts.

If you need a 5 bolt head gasket, there are repros on ebay.

Should have said, I don't have a Globester, but my friend does. I am redoing his engine.

If his scooter has the Maximatic drive, be aware you will need to shim the drive unit to get correct belt positioning.
