Bottom oil ring.

In need of one bottom oil ring for a piston out of a W5 that has 4 groves instead of three. All looks very good inside this engine except that piston 2 and 3 were locked up due to a bad head gasket. Broke one bottom oil ring taking them apart. Anyone got a spare piston somewhere with 4 groves in it?? So far the other pistons I have all have 3 groves and the bottom oil ring in them is thicker than the one with 4 groves. Any other suggestions will be appreciated. Dave.
