    Cylinder bulge?

    After pulling the head off last night, I found that Cyl. 4 had some ridges on what feels like a bulge in the cylinder wall. I haven't pulled the piston to see what it looks like, but Im assuming this is worthy of needed a rebore.

    Here are the shot from last night:

    I don't have a bore gauge to measure. But I'll spin the motor to see how the pistons/rings move around it.

    Here's a video of the piston clearance. I knew that there was additional clearance for piston growth, but not that much. Cylinder 4 was a bit sloppier than the rest.

    I'll pull things out tonight and put them in baggies. Tomorrow I'll bring them up to Schmidt racing to see how much material they think needs to come out to get that ridge out. Then I'll order pistons based on that information.

    If those are stock sleeves then i would find a new block. If GE sleeves then rebore it and get bigger pistons.
