    oh yeah, Lets not forget that he's gonna need a new Machinist,the one he used for the last ten years isn't worth a chit.He showed us a cylinder the guy did, but said he was gonna run it anyway.So theres another thing that blows me away,one minute he will run junk then turn around & say he runs his chit a certain way.

    Re: 88kawi5fiddy dishonest seller

    When boring 2 or 4 stroke cast iron or cast iron sleeved cylinders the piston clearance (at least) is typically left for the honing operation. Basically, the actual piston size is the diameter the cylinder when it is removed from the boring bar and the final few thousands are removed with a hone. If a honing operation is glazing a cast iron cylinder there is operator error going on big time!

    Re: 88kawi5fiddy dishonest seller

    Just takes a really long time to hone thousands without glazing. If your boring is all done in line then .001 is more than enough to hone. Just a time and effort thing. Maybe it reduces the risk of screwing up a cylinder if you leave several thousandths and just let the machine run and hope the stones hold out.

    Edit : If your honing by hand, then you want to leave as little (.0005 max ) as possible. Then your worst case senario on true position would fall into specs.

    I am not sure what you have been reading, but it is pretty obvious that you have never done this before... Why don't you do yourself and everyone else a favor and actually bore and hone a cylinder using the proper tooling before you comment further.

    Re: 88kawi5fiddy dishonest seller

    I , personally have never left more than .001 of an inch. I've hand honed single cylinders and have NEVER left more than .001. Wheather your a mind reader or not , this is what I do.


    Edit: If you mean do YOU a favor, then ok I will concede as you do it for a living. I did not read any of this. Was a tool maker for 20 years, rebuilt many cylinders and pumps using cast iron sleeves dutch keyed or spot welded in. never left more than a thousand to hone sand or polish.

    Re: 88kawi5fiddy dishonest seller

    Tool maker huh? You need to stick with whatever it was that you used to do because you don't what you are talking about as far as honing jet ski cylinders.

    Just so everybody knows, when a cylinder leaves the boring bar it is straight and true with a fairly rough surface finish. Honing 001" will not clean it up, period. What will result is a nasty looking bore as opposed to a clean looking crosshatch finish that everyone expects. And as I mentioned previously, if you are loading stones and glazing cylinders while honing cast iron cylinders you are doing something very wrong.

    Wait a minute, aren't you the genius from a while back that was trying to convince everybody that you were getting accurate dome volumes without using a flat plate?
