Thanks for the offer, but I’m on the east side of Michigan.  I think you know what I want to learn.  I have an old Moore jig bore machine, so I can insure a VERY round cylinder.  But once I do that, what’s next?  Honing?  Then measurement? Then buy the piston?  Or to I get a piston, measure it, and bore to that size?  What kind of clearance are we talking about for a tight and lose piston?  I think I have the tools to do this right, but just not the experience.  I have a third stock engine I can play around with.

The damaged engine, I probably will send out.  Thanks to Stu and Tony for suggesting P1 and LAD.  I’ve heard of both of these places, but it’s nice to have a recommendation.
