Jeff ,

Home is where your mom is .

Hone is what you do to a cylinder to come closer to perfection . ;)

Adam ,

Unless you're installing new rings , I'd run that cylinder as is . Cleaned , of course .

The more you take out , the less you'll have , compression wise .

Not to mention that the rings are worn to the cylinder as is .

If you remove the glaze , which is actually doing a hone job , the rings will wear more as they conform to the new cylinder surface .

Less compression .
