Good suggestion steve but the heads were already off. During its life I blew a metal style head gasket So I wanted to look at the rings anyway. I think the piston rings should be all checked or just replaced. I had plans to bring the rods to Gary for oil drilling and honing for floating wrist pins like we did on the MG 350. I swear i notice the difference in the revving. I think it will step up the motor Too. Next rebuild will be new bore and pistons anyway. Summit has a re-ring kit just over 100 bucks. Federal kit is 177. I’m gonna check Amazon. As long as the pistons look ok too.Did you by any chance do a cylinder leak down test before you pulled the heads? If you did and it was good and since the bearings look great why not put it back together and save the money for something else the motor might need.
