GX160 standard piston-ring materials?


Am I allowed to ask what peoples opinions are regarding the standard Piston-ring materials. I suspect/guess the following:

Top ring - chrome plated steel or iron?

2nd ring - Iron?

3rd oil control rings - chrome plated steel?

But I'm guessing, any opinions welcome, I have some old rings so I will pull them apart tonight, I guess if they fracture easily they are iron.

Top and Sec are iron.
Take an old ring and open it up and see if it breaks. If it's iron it will snap. I'm betting it's chrome or moly coated.
I don't know what the config of the oil ring is so I can't tell you. One piece, 2 piece or 3 piece.
