A bore guage will let you check the cylinder for out of round and taper, or take a top ring to and use it to check the ring end gap in the top and bottom of ring travel in the cylinder. You should be fine giving it a honing too, the oppys have cast iron cylinder sleeves.

What did you set your valve clearances to?

Good Idea on using an old ring to check too.  I may try that later.

I set the intake to .004.  One was already there, the other had no gap.  I got it up to .004.  The exhausts were sitting around.005, I bumped them to .008.

Seats an valve mating surfaces looked great!  Didn't feel I needed to lap them.

Oh okay, your clearances should be alright. A good way to check if a valve is seating is put it in the block, apply good pressure to it with your thumb and try to turn it back and forth. If it turns real easy it's not seating right.

They are seating really well.  No wiggles.

Drilled out those pockets so oil doesn't sit in there to coagulate. Now the block needs a good cleaning to be sure not to get any shavings in there.

Anyone know what this nifty tool is for?  Very Happy

I'll post the answer tomorrow if no one gets it! 


Waiting for some parts to come in at this point.

It's a piston groove cleaner/cutter.   Li'l Red 3.0? Growing up to be Red. - Page 5 102878487

Boy that's pretty neat, I don't think I've seen one of those before either. Another good way to do it is snap one of the old rings in half and use the sharp broken edge to clean the grooves out.

'Course that only works if you're replacing the rings. lol!

@AllisKidD21, that was my plan to use an old ring since I got new ones.  My dad whipped that out and said, here you go.  You can keep it.  Worked like a charm and was super easy.

I worked over the engine this afternoon.  I found my compression and leak test kits.  I hate to go on, but left side engine I was getting 45psi with leaks.  Right side I got 32psi with major leak.

I knew I should have did a valve job.  I hate pulling valve springs.  I have a briggs tool now, so this should be easier.  I guess I have a new project.  Should I screw up, I do have a couple engines to pull new valves.

Dizzy

Well, compression is 53 both cylinders. Not as much as I hoped, but that could be the compression release. Leak down appeared fine. Too impatient to wait too long.

Li'l Red sounds great! But that was the best "Alright!" I've ever heard! I swear that was better than Mathew MaConaughey. Like you need to take that sound clip and make a button so that anytime your feeling cool just go over press the "Alright! Cool" button.
