    To hone or not to hone? Was the cylinder bored to bring it back to round or some other reason? Hone. Just throwing a fresh set of rings in an in spec cylinder? Don’t touch that hone! Honing is meant to remove the marks left from boring. Period end of story. Every other reason is the stuff of myth.
