No, if you still have a std bore I doubt a .010" re-bore would clean it up, I've even had to take std's up to .060" at times to get a good finish.

Get a set of .030 pistons and have a competent machine shop bore and hone it. These blocks can go .060” and beyond. If you are worried about the longevity of a block that is .010” oversized at 90 years old you must be expecting to live to be 400.

Lorenzo, as you know the usual vendors only go up to .08, but if I remember some prevoius discussions, there may be more size options if you contact the manufacturers directly. Egge is one.
