sort of picture the way a fresh hone looks on a cylinder wall... it's not a polished smooth, but a cross-hatch pattern
brings back funny memories.... my grandfather (RIP) was a mechanic all his life - top notch, could set timing to within half-degree just by sound and feel. could usually diagnose a problem before even opening the hood.
anyway, when he would do a clutch replacement, while the trans was out, he would start the engine, and get under the car with just a piece of 150 grit emery paper and a lit lucky strike hanging from his teeth and resurface the flywheel by hand with the engine running, using the engine as sort of a lathe... the man was nuts but could run circles around most other mechanics who had twice the diagnostic equipment & machinery.
