302 Z28 Those are really called glaze breakers at least that is what we called them years ago. FWIW do not use motor oil with them. Motor oil will clog the surface of the stones. We used to use Varsol or some other thin solvent and got great results. Place a tub under the block and flood the cylinder with Varsol as your working the tool up and down.

They have bigger but I would think one of those would be what I need.
120 is pretty ruff you may not need that much. Also use some motor oil on the cylinder walls while honing. Lots of oil and a few swipes per cylinder and your done. More is less. Literly!

240 320 you want small scratches not big ones.

Sounds funny but the last ball hone i got was from amazon they had every size and grit. Also had fast shipping. If you want good brand name amazon usally has the best internet price. Snap on is crazy price for average guy to buy if only going to use it once.

Your not looking for a regular cylinder hone are you? Normally these days i let the machine shop hone because there computer hone is acurate within .0001 of an inch.

I normally use a ball hone for blocks that dont need cut. They dont really romve any metal and are easier to use for first timer.
