Re: Bore Honing Without Engine Removal

I don't think they are talking about operating at low power in neutral for hours on end. However going to high power in neutral is silly, it doesn't do anything. You need to go to full power in gear, for a moment anyway, to do anything.

Bore Honing Without Engine Removal

Well it will actually blow carbon off of the exhaust valves, just from them vibrating.
Itís the puff of dust youíll see from an engine even gasoline that is pushed to redline, one that usually is driven by Grandma.

However I agree, I donít see it accomplishing much, and has always confused me.
I ASSUME and you know the root words there, that they must mean low RPM as in idle or a high idle, or they would surely say if low RPM cruise, increase throttle to full for one min or so?
Why put it in neutral unless your already there and canít realistically put it in gear?
I think this is for the people that regularly charge their batteries at anchor, not for those cruising at 1500 or so.
