push rod guide checker
Is this a slip of the finger or is there really something called a push rod guide checker ???

Anything you want to add or change ??? I added about 4 rows and 3 columns, might as well use the space for something.
I will make the form available in three types/formats in the "spread sheets and engine related forms" section when were done.

Under "Tools" you call for a "Hone Stone", is that for the cylinders ??? Wanted to make the it a little more descriptive.

I have assumed the basic block prep and machine work are done at this assembly point, the HONE STONE is to debur the ring ends once they are gapped correctly
Image
gaps must be correct for the application

Image
ring ends must be, correctly gaped, cut parallel and de-burred before installation
Image

use of the proper tool helps keep the gap and ring ends square and parallel

Image

Image

Image

remove the burrs from the ends of the ring after gapping them,but don,t round off the ring ends like the left side, in his fingers here

Would the Jeweler Files be a duplication of the Hone Stone, or for something different ???

jewelers file is used for cutting a small vertical oil feed groove in either the block or lower distributor oil passage band and modifying the lip on thrust bearing inner parting line seal edge
