Cylinder Hone Preferences
 
Which type of cylinder hone do you prefer and why? I'm talking the ones you put in a drill, not the automatic ones.

1. Three stone type (Glaze breakers)
2. Ball/Flex hone
3. Others??

It depends on what you are honing. Difficult to use ball hone on wheel cylinders or calipers

For engine cylinders, Ball or brush hone is only way to go.

But these are only for conditioning a good minimal wear cylinder.

What grit is recommended? I'm changing pistons in a recently bored block (less than 5000 miles) - it still has cross hatching and no ridge. I checked for overbore and there less than .0005" anywhere in the bores (my bore measuring tool is accurate within .0003".)

hone has to match the rings, but yea for a DIY quick job a ball or brush is best though I have ran a 3 stone with out any problems.

Using a good lube and cleaning the bores is a very critical step as well.
