(4) When the bore is fairly clean, remove the hone, inspect the stones, and measure
the bore. Determine which spots must be honed most. Moving the hone from the
top to the bottom of the bore will not correct an out-of-round condition. To remain
in one spot too long will cause the bore to become irregular. Where and how much
to hone can be judged by f el. A heavy cut in a distorted bore produces a steady
drag on the hone and makes it difficult to feel the high spots. Therefore, use a light
cut with frequent stone adjustments.
(5) Wash the cylinder block thoroughly after the honing operation is completed.
