Default Need rings for a Fairbanks engine

I have a model of a Fairbanks Morse 1A Eclipse engine. I bought it some time ago. It looks great but has zero compression. It looks like it was never run. I finally took it apart and found that the top ring is missing. Even with one ring you would think that it would have a little compression , but no. Is someone still making this model? Where can I get rings? The piston is 1 1/2" , the bore is a little over size. the ring is 1 1/2"+ X .093" high X .065" wide. Ron
