Sorry Ed, I wasnt clear. I was referring to the need to run the bores in, without which the rings evidently will never seal. And it is this aspect of running in that bothers me, if I just start it up occasionally to make me smile, will I be ruining the chances of getting the rings to settle.

On the original rebore, the cylinders have been nicely cross hatched, so I think it will be fine, subject to my concerns about whether to just run it in for 20 hours on the bench, or wait for it to be on the road.
