Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
If you already have it torn apart, just replace them, it's worth the extra cash.
Also, the car was never running. It had about 30psi in each cylinder (give or take 10-20PSI) cranked fine but of course it wouldn't start.
I've got the head at a machine shop right now to see if it's warped and get it resurfaced (if it's not warped) Hopefully he will check the valves while he's at it.
The bores have to be measured. If they are too far out of round, you'll have to overbore them and get new rings and pistons to fit the larger bore.
If they're not out of round, you can just rehone the cylinders and slap on a new set of rings.
The cylinder bores must be rehoned to put a crosshatch pattern on the walls. If this step is skipped, your engine will smoke like a chimney until the rings seat, assuming that they ever do.
