He said he went threw all of them and couldnt find any close enough and wouldn be able to line hone it. So I told hime I have another block Ill bring up. It doesnt make sense to me that you can bye brand new main caps for a block and get them line honed to work but you cant take used main caps and make them work.
your mains may have been that fubared from the get go. If you're going to pay to line hone it though you may as well step up to splayed mains.
