Connecting Rod Play... should there be any?

also, does the cylinder ALWAYS have to be honed for a new piston? and if so, what does it usually run?

Such a small amount as you described should not be a concern. If it was excessive, (say like 5mm or so) then you may have a major problem.
Anyone care to confirm or deny this?

I don't know if this actually does any thing but I saw some guy who's cousin said he knew what was doing do this.
With me it's monkey see monkey do.
I have never had an original thought in my head.
By the way whats black dog services? Sounds like a whorehouse for Labrador Retrievers.

you just used one of those adjustable jobs from and auto parts store? i saw a medium grit one, fits from 2" to 7 ", looked perfect, but i had my doubts about them.. did you have good results? how long did you spin the hone in the cylinder?

As far as honing the cylinder, being a Nicosil cylinder, unless you have a diamond impregnated hone, all you can do is break the glaze. A ball hone or expandable hone will NOT crosshatch the cylinder as it is just too hard. Just use a ball hone to break the glaze. Never hone at all when reusing the old rings, only when installing new rings. After using the hone, take ATF(automatic trans fluid) and paper towels and wipe thru till the towel comes out clean. Particles of the hone imbed in the crosshatch and MUST be cleaned out.
