After pulling out the internals, Richie Estrada tried a simple honing with a bottle brush to see how it looked. If there is a good bore and taper and no cylinder wall damage, then you can successfully hone the engine and do a basic rebuild without machining the engine. Unfortunately, ours had some pitting and scarring that would require boring the cylinders. At this point, a machine shop like Valley Head Service is required.
