Try NAPA Auto Parts

The carry almost everything for Ammco cylinder hones, brake lathes, etc. Most of it, the stores have on hand, and if they don't have it they can generally have it the next day. The store in Freeport Illinois has a brand new arbor on hand to fit my brake lathe if I can ever afford to buy it.

Might want to check back with NAPA too, to see if they might be able to get a copy of the instruction manual, otherwise try your local library (depending on how big it is) or do an internet search for your model number.

Could you post pics of what they look like? I've got a box of old Ammco stuff I got at an auction. Was thinking about putting it on ebay...if you can use some of it, I'm easy to deal with...

Ronm,
I am quite interested in the Ammco hone parts you have. I have two old hones with broken parts. I am new to this board and don't know how to post pictures.

I would be very interested in seeing pictures of what you have.

Can you help me.

Thanks Adam

Just FYI, in case anybody else finds this old thread, my Ammco parts turned out to be sort of a false alarm, most of it was actually Sunnen, a big (8+") hone & a bunch of extras for it, that I think I'll keep for a while, who knows when a BIG engine might come along....
There was an Ammco small engine hone, but some of the Ammco boxes actually had Sunnen stones in them, which led to my confusion...
I've let Adam know what I have by email...
