Values of Torque plate honing

I can not stress enough that on factory blocks plating honing is a must to achieve good ring seal. People say the rings will break in LOL I have seen circle track engines with rags around the breathers for 2 or 3 years leak them down up to 35% leak down. I have always said its best to do a leak down 40 to 50 degrees BTDC or after TDC. Here is an article I did on plate honing years ago

Years ago some really sharp machinists who did a lot of machine work for a fist full of NHRA stock guys insisted on the use of a torque plate (and all kinds of funky stuff with those stock guys like running 180 degree water through the block as it was being bored and honed). If I had the $$ I would get one for my 6 motors.

Thanks for posting that!

No Torque Plate Honing = Much Higher Leakdown %
It's that simple..lol
