I really don't think Mike Busch has scared us into not tearing an engine apart. It's done everyday. But a much greater expense. And Oh just remember the hassle. What a pain in the elevators.
But again, the lapping really does work, and not just temporarily.
Ask some of the people who have done/had it done.
I always say "it's just money" if you have it. Pull the jug and do the break-in all over again.
My three cents worth. Art
