After fighting with the timing on the other B&S 320000. I was wondering if I could hone the other one to get the cross hatch pattern without take the crankshaft out ?
Honing with Crankshaft in

I hone with crank in all the time. Just be sure to give it a good cleaning afterwards. I give then a soapy hot water was a couple times, rinse well, then blow dry with compressed air. Follow with a coating of spray can lubricant over the internals to prevent rust before assembly.

Ya sure but cover the crank journal in heavy grease and spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner down the bore from the crank side and whipe out with a clean White cotton cloth (old T-Shirt) till the cloth comes out Clean.
Don't forget after installing the rod and piston to turn the engine upside down and dump some Oil all over everything.
I forgot to oil up a Kohler that I put new rod and rings in.Fired it up and it run good for about 10-15 seconds then heard the Loud Squeal.The Camshaft seized to the Cam pin and spun in the block because there was no oil on the darn thing yet.Luckily I had a used cam and pin to put back in it.Luckily I caught it before it snapped and Didn't hurt the holes for the cam pin.Still had to use a punch to install the new Pin so it was still tight.

Does this look good to you all ? First time honing a engine.
Looks like you may not have enough cross-hatch. You want the lines to intersect forming a 60 degree angle to each side. You have to run the hone slowly while pulling hone in & out rather fast.
