Are you planning on reusing
your pistons and re-ringing them. I think I have a set of 1500 ATe rings here.
My plan had been to replace them, but now I wonder. They look better than I had expected, but then I'm not really sure what I'm looking for when it comes to evaluating pistons and cylinders.
Honing & re-ringing might be your best option -- I've heard rumbling that the 83mm P/C sets
have gotten to be fairly hard to come by.
A lot of people just use the 85.5 sets and wind up with a 1600, partly because it's cheaper
and partly because nobody can tell without taking the engine apart. But for something
*that* early, I'd want to keep it stock
