Not hard at all, no shavings, no squeeking, no heat. Remember, I did say that I oil the bore prior to assembly so there is lubrication in all the cross hatches. Question, how much oil do you think is between the rings of the motor in your car sitting in the parking lot right now? If there's more than a thin film than it's probably time to rebuild it.
