What I'm seeing is the scoring below the top ring. If stuff got down there, it was pushed very hard against the bore.

I'll get some bore pics, but I can tell you that you can barely discern the marks with a fingernail. Soft aluminum vs. a much harder bore.

I thought O'Neil may have tried to call here, but the phone has been busy for the last two hours.......I have a teenager Anyway, one less worry here at our end, I called Sears, and they will gladly hold on to the washer and dryer until you get home. The woman there was very understanding and was very nice. So, one less thing here.

The kids say hi, and Andrew has try-outs for the tournament basketball team tomorrow.

That'* a much bigger chunk out of that piston than I had imagined.

Sounds like, with a new piston and a simple freshening, you will have a spare bottom end to hang on your engine stand.

Personally, I would build it up with forged pistons. You got lots of time Bill. Buy one piston every month.

I can vouch for the soft feel on the cylinder wall, hardly noticable only can feel with a finger nail really.
Pics wont show much but Bill does have a trick camera

The meet should be over today, John is taking me to the tranny shop around 11.
This has been a fantastic meet in spite of the circumstances.

Will post tonight when I finally get home.

Godspeed, keep the rubber side down, and NO TICKETS.

No hurry, you have a 6-hour head start!

Shouldn't he be picking up his car by now? Probably test driving.
