Depending on the bore condition, 20 to 60 strokes will be
sufficient to provide a satisfactory surface. Inspect the
cylinder walls after each 20 strokes. Use a light honing oil.
Do not use engine or transmission oil,
mineral spiris or kerosene.

and down fast enough to get a cross hatch pattern. The cross
hatch angle is most satisfactory for proper ring seating when

traces of abrasives. Use a solution of soap and water with a
brush and thoroughly dry the parts. The bore is clean when
a cloth remains clean after wiping it. Oil the bores immedi-
ately after cleaning to prevent rusting.
