The honing process took just over 30 minutes. Preventing the mains from overheating and expanding is critical during the course of honing. Consolo checked with dial calipers to reveal two things: Our center cap looked good, but the rear cap was still too large. The cap was then removed, cut, and reinstalled. Additional passes of the hone revealed 2.6410 inches from the dial indicator. Some hones have a tendency to taper the mains, so flipping the block around eliminates the inconsistency in the machining process and will help keep things in line.
