. Didn't think anyone champfered the tops of the cylinder bores anymore... I don't... just use a good ring compressor to install the pistons... any champfers on the bore or piston tops are places where mixture can hide and not burn... costing power and producing a dirty running, polluting engine... champfers also lower compression ratio...
