My question is if I am going to reuse the pistons and rings, they look really good, should I hone the cylinder or just clean the glaze?
or should I hone and re-ring while its apart?
or pistons, rings and hone?
I have cleaned my bores using a rotary wire brush in an electric drill.Gives a great finish that looks like a rebore.My T120 burns virtually no oil at all after building it this way.I would re-use piston rings if they fit the bore with the correct gap and the piston grooves are not worn out
When I measured the bores they were not oval or tapered but were on the limit of wear stated in the Triumph manual.
