    Out of round and taper are all good. I checked each cylinder in 6 spots. I also checked the ring gap a half inch down with a top ring off the old piston...it was .024 of an inch. What would be an acceptable cylinder bore size for a standard size piston?

    All posts from K447 have a link to really good info. You should find the info n the service manual along with procedure.
    It's a fairly complicated subject-too difficult to type out.

    IIRC cylinder is exactly 81mm- piston is stamped with it's exact size-IIRC 80.89mm ???

    Thanks for pointing me in the correct direction. From my measurements it looks like the cylinders are within the service limits for a STD size piston set. I reread my service manual and some links you pointed me to and it all makes more sense now. I will get my pistons ordered along with some new fuel line sometime this week.
    Thanks again,

    I got the engine back together and back into the hull. Everything went well other than me losing my coolant rail gaskets...but I should be able to make some. I have good compression and everything seems to work except I have no spark. I know this Virage had sat for quite a while before I picked it up...other then that I don't know what the PO had done to it. I checked the red/purple wire going into the CDI and got 11 volts while cranking. What voltage should I be getting on the 2 black/white wires going to my coil? I am hoping to get a chance to do some testing towards the end of the week...I just want to know where to

    After some reading I now have spark. I was just grounding one plug...as soon as I grounded both my spark was there. I hope to find out if this thing will fire up this weekend. Now it is time to do some reading on the break in ratio.

    I went out in my workshop after work today and was able to get my Virage to fire up. It is just too cold to hook a hose to it so I just let it run for around 5 seconds. Sunday is going to be around 50 so maybe I can try that then. Thanks for all the help so far...you have been a big help.
    I do have a question. What do you do about cracked seals on the steering and reverse cables? I can't seem to find them except for the whole cable. Thanks again

    It's more of a dust cap. Should put some sort of silicone lube/grease on the cable.
    Try a rubber band or zip tie to hold the cap on.

    Perfect...I will get it lubricated and use some heavy duty shrink tubing to hold it together. Thank you...now bring on some warm weather��
