why didnt you use any honing oil? those cylinder walls look like they might have some deep scratches in them from your honing. Mine didnt look like that when I did mine.

First pic says its a practice block. :) Soo your saying the honing job should not have deep scraches?
I am saying that mine didnt have as deep of scratches in it when I did mine. Might want to play around with it a little bit more to get a better cross hatch.

For reference, this is how my block looked when I got it back from the machine shop:



From what I know, this is pretty much how you would want it to look...

Edit: mrnicolas beat me to it, but I'll just keep it up here anyway.

Here's my block;



Not very good pic, but should give you an idea too. Those s_18s and mrnicolas's pics look really good.

Another pic from slightly different angle and light, shows how smooth they're (with assembly oil, WD40 applied). That's Golden Eagle block guard I have.

^^^ looks clean ass hell!
Heh, thanks :)
It's not good to be messy here with this stuff u know.. 8)
My block is glass bead blasted, that's why it's so clean. Looks like new :)

And yes, definately use honing oil (WD40 works well) and use sharp up-down motion with slow rpm's. Don't let it rotate in same position in cylinder, always push or pull when tool is turning.

If you have a broke stone dont use the tool, slow down the rpm and speed up the up down stroke, use a good lube like ATF or honing oil. I prefer a ball hone for DIY guys since it does a great job but is alot harder to F up the cyl wall than a stone hone, I have seen to many blocks get ruined becuase of novice honing with a stone hone.

Here is my block after my ball hone on my last motor.
