Ray, I did check for "out of round", the numbers I came up with looked good to me. I posted a video of my findings a few posts back. I did not check for ring end gap, I do not know where to find that spec? Do you know what the formula is?






Marc,

The formula for 4 stroke engines is 0.004" per inch of bore but I think that may be tight for 2 strokes, the OMC spec for the 45 cubic inch two cylinders is 0.019" to 0.031", this is a 3-3/16" bore motor so they are giving it almost 0.006" per inch of bore.
Using a standard bore, worn block with standard size rings it should be safe to say you are OK without checking, I always check just to make sure the parts all fit correctly just because I know it's my build that goes south if they don't. :hmm:

By the way, you're making this look way too easy leaving out all the fun of cleaning everything up and scraping the gaskets and everything :biggrin:
