I always use cheapcycleparts.com; they seem to have the lowest prices, great customer service, and low shipping costs.

For lack of a better term, the ring movement forms a "glaze" on the cylinder wall. If you don't remove it, the new rings won't seat. Glaze breaker is a rotary hone with three spring loaded arms with fine stones on the end. Mounts in a drill. Use a variable speed drill on low to medium speed and move it up and down the cylinder wall at a constant speed. Will polish the walls and remove the "glaze". Can probably google rotary hone and see a picture of one. Some auto parts places loan 'em out.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
