What's Kumar Bros? No matter. Dial calipers will only get a ballpark measurement. They won't tell you out-of-roundness very well at all, and certainly won't measure taper. Only a dial bore gage will be precise enough. Calipers are good to have regardless and dial bore gages are not something everyone would have anyway unless they have their shop and such. Telescoping gages will work somewhat but you still need a set of them and micrometers. A good local machine/engine rebuild shop should have all those gages. I suspect you are going to go ahead and use the old cylinder anyway after all the advice given, so i would suggest if so, take some medium grit Scotch Brite and smooth out the bore surface a bit. Don't sand or hone anymore. You plan on using the FO-4 Manual don't you?
