I am going from 4.600 to 4.610 bore so I need a new tapered ring sleeve for 4.610. I have looked around some but have not found anyone who sells one. Anyone know of a source?
This is why i mentioned the polishing of the transition. Thats rather important especially with the tiny rings we use nowadays.I've done that as well... it can be done with a 3 jaw and a boring bar, but once you break thru the hard anodizing it might not like the ring sliding thru the taper so much... especially where the corner of the taper to straight portion is.. just osmething to keep in mind. you're only going .005 in material.
I was trying to make a 4.200 into a 4.250 LOL
Good ideajust sawcut thru one side ( wall)...and go to store and buy a gear drive hose clamp to squeeeze it back together...
we like to remove allmost all of the chamfer that is on edge ( bottom of ring/piston installer ring ) so that the thin rings do not hang up on the deck/bore interface.....
