Filing rings?

Recommended Posts

I was watching one of those performance automotive shows and they suggested to file the sharp edge off the outer corners of the rings in order to avoid scracthing the cylinder during installation. I was thinking of doing this on my K341 rebuild. Is this a good idea?

I guess if you were building a supercharged 10,000 RPM racing motor with a 13:1 compression ratio, that would be a prudent "blueprinting" good thing to do. Tom (PK)

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
