    I did a cylinder hone to polish them a touch, cleaned the carbon from the combustion chambers and piston, did a valve lap. I resealed the entire engine except I did not split the cases or remove the rocker assembly as no wear showed. I had new rings but didn't use them as the others look great and measured to spec. Basically, I bought an overhaul gasket set for $35.00 and the rings I bought for 26 dollars will go into the other motor when it gets done,
    I also went through the carbs.. I am not so sure about "easier" than cars...most cars have a lot more room to work with. I worked in auto repair field for 20+ years and felt quite capable there....this was a learning experience. The next one will be easier.
