I believe the cylinder will be ruined. I have always heard that they must be two different substances in order to seal properly. We usually see chrome rings on a steel cylinder and cast rings on a niksil cylinder.

If you run this combo and if it fails will the resultant piston and cylinder look like a meltdown???

My reputable Cat shop has sent me chrome replacement rings and piston set for my nikasil cylinder.

Like a fool I installed them but was having trouble with multiple meltdowns.

I presently don't have chrome on nikasil. Have about 20 miles on the new install.

By the way thinking about taking my chrome (melted)set back to the cat shop for my money back.
