Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), maker of flexible hones and diesel and automotive brushes, is announcing cylinder honing tools for rebuilding Honda engines. BRM’s Flex-Hone® tool removes torn, cut, and folded metal from cylinder walls, deglazes engine cylinders, and improves overall surface finish. By creating an ideal cross-hatch pattern, the BRM ball hone also optimizes engine lubrication.
Rebuilding Honda D-Series Engines
In a technical discussion entitled “DIY Teardown and Rebuild of a D-15 engine”, members of the on-line community D-Series.org learned how to hone cylinder walls with the BRM Flex-Hone® tool. In a series of step-by-step posts complete with full-color photographs, an amateur engine mechanic explained how he honed the bores and restored the cylinders in a Honda Civic engine.
When a visual inspection revealed “rust and muck” in cylinders 1 and 2, the mechanic asked automotive experts for advice. “Each and every one said that a good honing will take care of the rust and anything else left in the bore,” the engine builder explained. For superior surface finishing, the Honda mechanic chose the Flex-Hone® tool from Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM).
Engine Hones and Cylinder Walls
Built with a stiff metal stem and flexible nylon filaments, the BRM engine hone produces the optimum surface finish in any type or size cylinder. Self-centering and self-aligning to the bore, the Flex-Hone® features abrasive globules that also make the brush tool self-compensating for wear. BRM’s cylinder hone can be used with handheld electric drills and is both versatile and easy-to-use.
Before honing engine cylinders, apply a generous amount of lubricant to the BRM ball tool. For best results, choose Flex-Hone® oil. Then, with the flexible hone spinning, insert the engine hone into each cylinder. Without over-honing, stroke the cylinder walls to improve surface finish and produce an ideal cross-hatch pattern with oil-retaining grooves. For the 3-inch Flex-Hone®, 700 RPM are recommended.
