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.
