Plateauing the bore with a two-step honing process leaves a flatter surface with more bearing area that improves ring seal and reduces the time it takes for the rings to seat. Bore distortion can be caused by any number of things: Bore distortion can vary from almost nothing up to a couple thousandths of an inch!
On ring end gap, "three to four per inch of bore" is what Hastings always said. The objective is to create sufficient crosshatch depth in the cylinder wall to retain oil with a relatively flat, smooth flat surface area between the grooves to support the rings.
Three dimensional bore mapping requires sophisticated and very expensive lab equipment that piston ring manufacturers and engine designers typically have but very few shops can afford to own.
This can slow ring seating, increase blowby and hurt fuel economy and performance. Do you have any experience in TBI units? This can be caused by using a stone grit that is too coarse, poor stone breakdown, coolant viscosity too high or excessive stone pressure.
The best way to bore a cylinder is to use a boring machine and not a hone. This can slow ring seating, cause scratching and high wear, and increased oil consumption. Take the piston measurement and subtract it from the biggest cylinder measurement.
Do you think the reboring will affect the TBI unit and maybe reprograming of the chip is needed? Technician B says to set the meter to measure amperage and connect the probes in series between the negative battery terminal and the negative battery post.
This can result in abnormal wear, excessive oil consumption and a prolonged ring break-in period. A good technique is to hone out to remove the taper and installed stock bore forged pistons, a little extra clearance is OK with forged pistons as they can handle the stress. The real trouble comes when the cylinder is already worn oval and tapered.
Because of this, the surface finish can be much smoother as little as 2 to 4 Ra and less crosshatch can be used. In this case that would be.
Im thinking of saving up and going with the reboring, if i put in new pistons, rings etc and then only to have it running terrible or seizing up again then im back to square one With compacted graphite blocks, surface finishes can also be smoother 12 Ra range with less valley depth to retain oil Rpk around A quick polish of the crank if its straight is a good idea so your bearings see a clean smooth surface.
This will drastically reduce the time it takes for new rings to seat, and also minimize ring wear during the break-in process for longer overall ring life. A honing machine that offers variable speed stroking and can dwell in the bore while maintaining the same loading reading will produce better bore geometry than a machine that lacks these features.
A third order distortion results in a triangular shaped hole, and is usually caused by a combination of second and fourth order distortions. The average roughness, peak height and valley depth of the surface must be compatible with the type of rings that are used.The cylinder wears in a taper and out of round from the top down.
Sometimes the wear is so pronounced that there is a ring worn into the cylinder just below the top. Two technicians are discussing cylinder bore measurements. Technician A says the cylinder's bore should be measured for out of round.
Technician B says the cylinder's bore should be measured and checked for taper. Cylinder Taper is the difference of the diameter between top of the cylinder bore under the ridge and bottom of the cylinder Cylinder out of Round is the difference of diameter when measured parallel to crankshaft and then perpendicular to the same at top of the cylinder using bore gauge.
Feb 12, · Hi! I´m about to do a rebuild on my K TBI engine, 5,7 vin K.
I´ve measured the cylinder bores with a bore indicator (with a dial indicator) and i´ve noticed that i have some bore, taper and out of round measurments that are out of specs, so with this being a budget rebuild i wanted to check with you guys if you think a boring is needed or if i can get away with these measurements, im.
