got a 214 with a 14 hp motor early summer for $200. it was smoking real bad. finally got time to check the motor over.
pulled the piston and the rings were within a 1/2" gap of each other. checked the cylinder over and it was 0.004 over sized. so I brought a overhaul kit with +0.010 piston, rings, and rod. I like replacing the rod each time I replace the pistons.
There is a motor cycle shop here in town. He honed out a 210 motor ( 10 hp) last month for me, he had to hone it out 0.003 for the +0.10 piston I got for it. He charged me $20 for honing. So I drop it off for him to work in it. Stopped back a few days later and he said that his shoulder is hurting, So I said if I hone it out and asked if he would check the measurements, would that be okay. He said okay. The next morning I was honed out the cylinder. One hour later I was done. He checked from time to time how it was going and measure the cylinder to see how much I did. The final check I was 0.0005 over the 3.510 I was trying for. I was tired and my shoulder was hurting a little from hold onto the 1/2 drive drill.
I asked what the damages were and he said $20.
Got the motor all cleaned up and putting it back together.
Should have it back in the 214 tomorrow.
