    Got a pretty decent finish cut. Hone to .0005" then polish the rest. Going to finish in 1500 grit.

    590 jug 5mm over bore. Went from closed port to open lol[​IMG][​IMG]

    Going to make it full open port. As the remaining material covering the secondary is paper thin. Afraid it will buldge/break out it it lasts that long.

    Nice bevels.

    Now full circle piston or windowed?

    Just make sure it's not too tight, check it in a few spots throughout the bore

    Indeed. Between the ring and the dial bore gauge. It is coming along.

    Altho the stainless probes on the gauge Mar the aluminum bore. Guess extra oil retention lol

    Thinking about it after the fact, I will do a few things different while prepping for the sleeves.
