What's everyone do for cylinder prep for fresh rings

Recommended Posts

If the cross hatch pattern is good most people just scrub it with a scotchbrite pad and wash with water.  If the cross hatch pattern is lite or there is a little scuffing I use a ball hone and mineral oil to freshen them up, then wash it well.  With the ball hone it needs just a few seconds and keep the hone moving back and forth.  Leaves a perfect pattern and is not difficult.

Just a 20 second hone with kerosene, never had a problem.

On all the re-builds I did, I just take it to Honda of Sanford and pay the 20 bucks for the prep work. They woul clean any old gasket letf on the base and head portion, hone it and clean it really good. Worth it to me.
