Default What size and Type hone to use Redblock

I am rebuilding my motor and I am wondering what size and type of hone people have has the most luck with on redblocks. The block I am using is a 1986 b230f NA block the cylinder bore currently measures with calipers to 3.76". So I am wondering what kind of hone have people used Flex ball or 3 stone? What size did you use?

Any other tips are greatly appreciated if you have any

Are you just going for a quick de-glaze and slap new rings in? Or are you trying to resize and square up the bore?

Bingo.

I just grab the 4in one we have at the shop, but if you’re buying new you will have more size options. A few strokes at low-mid speed works great. Use some light oil or solvent as a lubricant. ATF, kerosene, mineral spirits, wd40... they all work.

Make sure you scrub the bores with soap and warm water when you’re done.

If you can easily cram it in there, you should be fine.
