I am about to hone the cylinders on my dismantled Continental A-80, using a newly acquired Flex Hone and wonder if anyone has experience of this tool.
It is recommended by the makers that the cylinders are washed out afterwards with warm soapy water. To avoid any risk of causing corrosion of the steel liner, would it be better to use, say, kerosene? I'm wary of using water anywhere near my irreplaceable cylinders.
I plan to use some plain motor oil with the hone - the fluid sold by Flex Hone is not easy to come by over here. They do suggest this is OK - but not quite as good as their product.
Thanks for any comments.
