Default 5.3 rebuild



I had some slight melting of the pistons. Anyone thing this cylinder could be a candidate for a ball hone and throw some gen3 flat tops in it? the Worst gouges barely catch a nail

Gouges won't come out but Dingle ball hone will remove the sharp edges. Ball hone and run it.

Why did you have the melt down though?
