I was rebuilding a Kawasaki V-twin lawn mower engine in a John Deere GX345. The cylinder OD is just under 3" so that was my search criteria for a reamer. I personally have never used a ridge reamer before because usually if it's that bad the rest of it is junk and it's just cheaper to buy a new engine. In this case the engine was in good shape and the cylinders were still within max wear limits. One of the things I noticed about the description was that it has rollers to help guide it in the cylinder, this was one reason I bought it. It was a perfect fit in my 2.9" cylinder, cut the ridge off the cylinder very cleanly and the rollers were definitely a plus in guiding it around the cylinder. I could not have been happier with it.

I have to agree with a couple of the other reviews about the lack of clear instructions. Being a mechanic for many years, I had a basic understanding of the process and sort of knew what I was doing. It has a wide carbide knife that "scrapes" away the ridge. The key is to make many passes that shave just a little off each time. Be careful not to take off too much. I can see how this would be easy to cut off too much if you are not careful.

This is a very handy piece of kit for the motor mechanic. The design has been improved by the use of rollers that some vintage reamers didn't have. Some people may question the need for such a tool but there are two good reasons for removing the wear ridge in the cylinder. (1) Removing the ridge will make the pistons much easier to remove. (2) If the ridge is left and new piston rings are fitted, trouble is likely to ensue. The old rings will have worn to suit the ridge but new ones won't have worn. With the ridge still in place the new rings are liable to break when the engine is revved. At one time in the UK it was possible to buy "groove-dodger-rings" for the top piston ring but these seem to have vanished from the marketplace.

Ridge reamer worked as advertised. "O" ring broke after one engine task. Company should ship product with a spare "O" ring.

I am restoring a small bore MG engine and I had been unable to buy a ridge reamer at the local auto parts stores that
would work in an engine with a bore smaller than three inches. This Lisle product works in bores as small as 2 5/8 inches
and fits my needs perfectly. I am very satisfied with the product, it works as promised.

The directions in the package are not very clear. But after working with it, it worked as expected. I recommend it. So, advice for the next buyer: Place in the cylinder and tighten. Place the 13/16" closed end over the large nut, place the wrench so that the handle is over the cutting blade portion of the reamer. Apply pressure with a 3/8" drive ratchet with 3 inch extension and 13mm socket on the tightening bolt as you turn the wrench. You have to hold it down or it will wedge as you turn the 13/16" wrench and you will damage your cylinder (produce gouges). Turn about 10 times around, tighten, repeat. I recommend only going 1/2 way into the ridge before moving to the next cylinder. Once done with all cylinders, go back to the beginning and finish each cylinder. By now, you have the experience to complete without gouging into the cylinder wall. I only went to the very edge of the ridge in my cylinders as the hone is slightly wedged so that it will start honing at the top of the cylinder and gradually work into the ridge as you tighten top down. I then used a Flex Hone to remove the cylinder glaze and dress the cylinders. Other advice, place the engine in an engine stand to keep stable and turn the engine so that it is at a 45 degree angle to the horizon, on the second time through, work each cylinder from the opposite side of the stand so you do not always stop the wrench turn at the same location each time.

If you want to remove the ridge of the cylinder in a nice clean fashion that does it with ease. Then this is not the reamer for you. The o-ring rubber band is a joke as in it breaks after the second hole, the centering bolt like to back out and is made of cheap soft steel so it's easy to round the head. Oh and don't forget that when the bolt backs out and the centering fingers and knife back off all in one quick motion, it leave a nice gouge in the top of the cylinder! I guess that's ok though since the machine shop can fix that for an added cost! This thing is a joke! Spend the extra and buy a lathe style reamer. much easier and smoother to use.

I only used this tool on 1 cylinder . The tool worked well removing the carbon build up but I didn't like the aggressive bite it had so I finished the rest by hand and decided not to use it on the rest of the cylinders. In my opinion the bevel it leaves is too deep and is dangerously close to the top piston ring for the engine I was rebuilding. It's been sitting in my shop for a couple months. When I picked it up it completely fell apart. The O ring is cracked and very brittle. Even when it was new out of the box the O ring seems undersized and is very stressed due to the weight of parts. Very disappointed with this overpriced piece of junk.
