Hi,Dan! You'll be alright when you install the rings.Have you done that before?I always slightly hone my cylinder with a brake hone and WD-40 and check for an inordinate amount of wear before installing a piston,but some guys don't recommend honing or ridge reaming.Be careful getting those rings in there.They probably have to have the ends set over a pin or something.This is why you need the manual.You only get one chance to do it right,so if you're not sure,get qualified help.Pat attention to what ring goes on top and if it has a cheater edge to compensate for a ridge at the top of the cylinder wall.Read instructions carefully.BYE!
