    Engine rebuild tool recommendations

    Looking for recommendations on the various tools you would need to rebuild a block. Thinking of the cylinder bore gauge, honing tool, piston ring pliers, etc. I don't mind buying inexpensive tools, but obviously want something that will hold up over time. Probably want something analog so I don't have to fool with batteries and what not, but not against it.

    What is everyone using in their garage?

    I buy ball hones. I picked up a decent bore gauge years ago, and it has served me well. Some cheap piston ring pliers get the job done. Thatís about it for me.

    Thanks Brian, I can wasn't sure.if I needed to get anything brand specific or if the generic tool brands would do.

    I hate to say it, but I use a lot of China made tools in my machining classes and they do pretty well.
