  1.  A true .003 clearance is going to give a ring gap of  .009423...Pi theory. .009423... ring gap is what you want, or .0010 if you want to get all technical?  

    It'll prolly run as it's honed, with new rings , but she's going to rattle. Ring's aren't going to seal 100%, barrel is scored.  But it will run.





  2. Check barrel and crank also. If it was running a standard crank, the barrel would have been cut top and bottom. If it was running a long conrod, the cylinder wouldn't have been cut and it  may have had a cylinder base packer.

    Looking at top of cylinder picture, it has not been cut.
