As you know I have done this a few times.  I have an old hone I have used every time I did it and I never had excessive oil consumption when I did.  I think it has provided a better job than when I have used what the machine shop has sent home with me, to the point that I might start running it over newly prepped blocks before assembly.  I will see if I can find out what Ra it is.


Thanks!! I was hoping you'd post some "pomp n' stink" LOL!

Yes, I know you've done this a few times.  I'm just trying to get as much info as I can from those who have done it... successfully.

Rebuilding this engine should not be THAT difficult.... but I'm NOT an engine builder.
