I am in the process of restoring my 52 8N and have the hdy. cyclinder and engine apart. What is the correct procedure for honing out the dhy. cyclinder and new sleeves. I bought a cyclinder hone with med. grit stones that covers from 2 inches to 4 inches. The stones are only about 1 inch long. Do I need longer stones and there are some scratches in the hdy. cylinder that I would like to hone out if I could to save the cylinder. Thanks for help.

I hate to do this but you can pull one spark plug wire off and reinstall at a time and listen for a change in how the engine runs. If engine runs rougher when wire removed that cylinder is ok, if no noticeable change then that is the cylinder. A spark plug may look good but still may not be firing.

One more thing - be careful when you are working the stones through the cylinder not to go so far through that the stones flare out and grind on the opening edges of the cylinder. The stones are mounted on springs attached to short arms. When they reach too far past the opening of the cylinder wall, they want to spread out. In some applications this can cause more trouble than in others. The trick is to hone all the cylinder wall without flaring the opening edges. It isn't that difficult and you should pick it up easily.

Good luck.
