Ok, so I have about decided that I will rebuild the CY engine I have with
total seal rings.  So....what special things must be done to get the
cylinders ready for the rings.  Do they require a special hone...a dingle
ball instead of a bar hone?  Is there a certain grit of stone that must be
used?  Also, I have found a local distributor (unfortunately he was closed
today) but does anyone know the cost of these rings and can anyone get them
cheaper (Hey Loren!).  Thanks,  Hayden
