BOUGHT A HEAD IS RE-RINGING PISTONS NECESSARY...
My truck has been smoking profusely at start up I know its either valve seals or piston rings. So I bought a rebuilt head and am planning to install. The question I have is how hard would piston reringing be after I already have the head off? In other words I would hate taking the risk of installing the new head and the rings being bad.I figure re-ringing the pistons would be the logical thing to do to ensure that I alleviate the problem. In other words how hard would it be to do the re-ringing job
