Default Cylinder Wall scratch

How much honing would it take to get out a cylinder wall scratch, just deep enough to hang a fingernail on? I have a 99 block and rotating assembly, but two cylinder walls have scratches that are straight up and down the wall, the length of the piston travel. I'm hoping to have just a small amount of honing done, and use the .25mm oversized rings that GM put out. Is this possible, or am I looking at new pistons too?

you wont know until the machine shop tells you how much they had to hone it to fix it....
very possible you will need a custom piston set if you can hang a nail on the scratches...

As soundengineer, just said... I'd get it measured first... It may work out fine.

I have to agree. Anything big enough to hang a nail, or be aware of to the touch of most folks is bad...

Dang Peter, what are you still doing up. Isn't it past your bedtime ...

Thanks for the replys, I'm really hoping I can sqeak by with the stock pistons. Don't have the dough to replace them right now. Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Don't worry about it. Unless your doing a big rebuild, don't sweat it. Run a hone and call it a day.

OK, yeah just doing a stock rebuild with a small cam. Just got my hands on the parts cheap and figured I'd build a standby motor in case I screw mine up.
