OK talked to my parts guy heres what he said


Yes you would need a ring compressor. Also would need a new oil pan gasket and lower oil seal. You will also need to take a look at the cylinder wall. If it looks good you will need to hone it out. You will need to buy a hone that attaches to a drill if you don't already have one. The when you go to put the rod back in you will need to find out what the rod bolts are supposed to be torqued at. too tight and the engine wont turn over. too loose you could throw the rod after awhile.
