recently reviewed your online cataalog & came across a section with videos of the recent SEMA show that was part of a grid of videos on how to hone

grid of videos on how to hone engine cylinders with a Flex-Hone. Evidently I was steered wrong on which size hone to order & the Flex-Hone I ordered & used is bunching up at the bottom of the cylinders. I also researched many online sites for the right sized & type of rings for my 2.0L. GM turbo engine. Since I can't pull the engine (the crank is still in it) I needed to know how to go about it without scratching up the crank, or ruining the crosshatch at the turn-around point at the bottom of the cylinders. I also needed to know how to keep all that water, honing oil, etc. off the crank and out of the oil journals. The last of my question was which grit to use. Your video with the specs at the bottom of the pace, said to ask a question on which engine size I had if it wasn't listed in the chart- I was about to e-mail my eng. size, when my windows7 os notified me that I didn't have an e-mail program installed. Funny I thought Win7 had that included, as I've been getting e-mails & spam from all over....

Grainger Item #: 2ZZC7
Flexible Cylinder Hone, Bore Dia. 3-1/2 In., Abrasive Material Silicon Carbide, 120 Grit, Coarse Grade, Overall Length 13-1/2 In., Hone Length 3-1/2 In.
 

Do I need a smaller diameter flex-hone?

I recently tried a flex-hone on my engine (2liter GM turbo in a little '88 sunbird) , but it seemed to be bunching up at the bottom of the cylinder {I can't pull the motor so it has the crank in it}. The BRM# I have is GBD31232 & I'm putting some Hastings rings in it. I have the .010 over rings, as I didn't think standard sized rings would seal well enough-it's been honed before. But I also keep getting conflicting info on which grit to use with these plasma moly rings- the top ones are plasma moly, & the middle rings are iron
