I've bored lots of Briggs aluminum block engines over the years. Go carts tend to be hard on engines. Never had any issues boring one and putting oversize rings and piston in. A hardened aluminum block? I've never seen one, all I ever saw were the aluminum bore blocks and the steel sleeved aluminum blocks. Yours isn't like some motorcycle blocks and has a chrome or nikasil plated cylinder does it?

It has something to do with the cooling process. You can scratch the outside of a new engine pretty easy with a screw driver, but it takes a bit more pressure on the cylinder wall. Similar to tempering steel. It seems to me that oversize rings are made of a softer material than standard when it comes to aluminum block engines. I know what you mean about the nikasil. My sled has it. My Briggs is a 74, so nothing so fancy. Perhaps I will take her to the engine machine shop. It's not a restoration thing like my Ferguson, it's just me being cheap. But the less money I spent on the blower, the more I have for my TEA20.

If you could hone most of it out you could get the chrome rings from Briggs for the slighly oversize and out of round bores. If they are still available for it. I would think that they are.
