well since the engine thats in the car is low on compression i pulled the complete engine that i got with the car out of the shed and took a look at it to see if its worth re ringing it so i can just swap motors instead of having the car down for a week

2 of the bores had some rust in them after cleaning this one turned out nice

so were gonna try honing it and if that bore doesnt clean up then ill pull and re ring the engine in the car
