Greetings : I am "breaking the glaze" on an engine and I have light cutting oil here but no "honing" oil. Went to the local auto parts shops and got a blank stare from most when I asked for honing oil. The napa store can sell me a 55 gal drum of it. Dont need that much, for 1 engine, Sooo= my question is can I use light cutting oil for honing the engine? And whats the difference? A machanic told me they used # 10 motor oil for this in the shop he worked in. But I thought to ask this group before I start anyway. Any information would be appericated, Thanks Tom.
