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.


Whose pistons and rings have you had the best luck or prefer?

What piston to cylinder wall clearance spec did you use and how did you measure it?

Did you follow the ring supplier/manufacturer's spec for Ra or did you do you own Ra?

How did you measure the Ra?
