Bottle Brush Hone for 230 Six Cylinder?

Dingleberry hone, berry brush, whatever you call it:



230 six has a 3.875" bore. Now I may be going crazy, but I can't seem to be able to find one of these for this bore size?

Surely I'm not the first to ever use one?

I'm searching over at inliners now...

They make them in larger diameters, I've always called them glaze breakers, they'll scratch up the bore for sure, but I wouldn't use it for a final hone. If nothing else, this is a very budget refresh and you have no machine shop around, get a set of spring loaded stones for your drill motor.

On the BRM site (makers of the Flex Hone) it says if your bore is between sizes to order the next larger size. A 4" Flex Hone will work on bores from 3 1/2" to 4". A 4 1/4 Flex Hone will work from 3 3/4" to 4 1/4". BRM makes the standard duty Flex Hone in a 4 1/8" size that would work. The heavy duty Flex Hones come in the 4" and 4 1/4" sizes. Any of these would work for your 3.875" bore.

I'll probably go with the stones. Just heard good things about the flex hone.
