Re: Is this too much rust in the cylinders????
I would definitely at least have it honed but it really depends on what the cylinders look like after they are cleaned up. Probably magnafluxed or sonic tested as well, hard to trust a block if you don't know its history.
I found most of the time after all the (machine) work that needs to be done all older blocks you are close to the price of an after-market block anyways (least getting close to 1/2), so not really worth the expense. I got away with it on my junk yard GenV 454 block because I was able to do all the work myself taking at class at a local CC (hot tank, magnaflux, sonic tested, grinding for clearancing pistons, deck and squaring etc)
