Does anybody make claimer rings in that size for a .060 350 chevy? I dont really want to spend $100 a set for rings.

IMHO you should Bite the bullet and buy good rings. The "cheapest" ring I use is Speed-Pro.

Rings will "make" or "break" a race engine, I dont care what anyone says.
If you use cheap rings, they wont seal,and the engine wont make any power....period!

HOWEVER.......
Just for the benefit of information, I think "Hasting" makes a cast 1/16,1/16,1/8 ring set in your price range, but I wouldnt use them in any of my engines. Remember, you get what you pay for!

Really....use good rings, you'll thank me later!

Grant #cp 4000b 1/16 1 1/16 1/8 $51.95

claim proven, 80,000 psi top chromemoly
55,000 second ring

These are very nice rings, I just freshend 3 of my motors with them.. they have bevels etc to reduce tension and contact area, unlike speed pro and hastings cheaper rings, which Ive ran also and didnt like the looks of.These grant rings look just like the JE and Childs albert rings I was running..
