How should I go about measuring the bor of my engine?  The head and pan are
off, so is the sump cover and pickup, and all the pistons and rods are out.
the engine is in the car.

I need to figure out how to measure it so I can hone it and see if I need to
bore it 0.040" over.  I think it's already 0.020" over.  I need to replace
my pistons and rings because I found the all the top rings on each piston
were broken and parts missing!!  Also, I melted the top of #3 when I
overheated it!! It's very mangled.

My cylinder walls are not scored at all though, amazingly. I was told I just
need to hone it enough to get the ridge off of the top.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
