    Will this Cylinder Hone Work? Lisle 15000

    http://www.tooldiscounter.com/ItemDi...le&kw=LIS15000

    I would buy it through Oreilly with my discount but would that one work with some 400 grit stones?
    Gotta know wheather or not to return this thing and pay someone to hone them or if it will work well, i can keep it... Anybody???

    I would go with a ball hone. I have one and don't have to worry about stones, catching on ports, chipping edges, etc.....

    Would I be able to use a ball hone to get to .25 over or should I just forget it and pay someone to do it all for me?

    You can't use any hone to get to .25 over. Need to get it bored.

    Use new rings when you get the jug bored out and a piston to match . Check piston to wall clearance and installed ring gap. Different brand pistons have different tolerances.

    You might have your decimal point in the wrong place. .25 is 1/4". That's a LOT of metal in cylinder terms. Boring a cylinder .025 oversize is probably stepping up 2 sizes. FWIW, I have a model 15000 hone. It is a top of the line hone. I bore a lot of cylinders and the hone is to finish the last 0015".

    You can hone to oversize. Boring is a better option, but the manual even states you can hone to oversize. Just did a 700 cyl .25mm over with that exact same hone.

    I apologize for the confusion, I will be going .25mm over with 3 cylinders and the other engine needs to be up to .50mm over, unfortunately I chose to take them to an automotive machine shop to get bored/honed and I will be going back there shortly to make sure that they can hone at 400+grit and also a little worried about them not chamfering the ports. Should I be worried or will everything be fine. Its a really good shop and they do unbelievable work but not typically on 2 strokers!

    I chamfer the ports with a pencil grinder. In the past with other engines, I used an electric dremel tool.
