Default Broken Ring on O.S FS-75 (open rocker)

Dear All,
First of all, I'm glad to discover this so huge RC Universe Forum related to model scale.
I recently get an O.S FS-75 (the second model of Open Rocker). Because this engine was stuck with old oil, I had to fully disassemble and unfortunatelly the piston ring has been broken (during wiping old oil).

Does anyone know how I can get the Piston Ring for this specific model ? If no Spares available, does anyone can tell me which solution I have ?

Thanks a lot for all your replies and help.

Contact his guy VIA Ebay message system https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAITO-FA-15...QAAOSweI1cTzf9

He makes properly sized, tensioned and heat treated rings for all RC engines. Fast turn around and reliable delivery. I have used several of his rings and no longer find the need to make my own! They LAST!

I hate to bring this up, but make sure the liner is not scored from that broken ring
