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?
