Hello J, Yes you can deglaze the aluminum cylinder:: a few things you should know and do,on the rebuild or over hall, GET A BOOK with all of the specs.for your briggs engine, now cylinder honing,to hone you have to have a honer that fits on a drill and use trans fluid to lube while honing go up and down slowely to get the X pattern,once you have done this check for roundness and ring end gap according to the book,you may need over size rings,and be sure when you put back together to get the timing marks lined up, and why are you rebuilding the engine,hope this helps,,

John Deere won't start after sitting over winter. I hear the carburetor needs to be cleaned but I don't know where it is or where to start in the removal of it from the motor mount

because John Deere has used Onan, Kawasaki,Tecumseh,Briggs and Stratton one cylinder and two cylinder gas engines you will need to Give the Tractor model or engine information to get any help on this question .With that information it will be easy to get you pictures and video of this job.

I overhaul this S92 briggs engine a month a go and it is burning oil it was buring oil before the ring gap of the new rings measure a lot better than the ring gap of the old rings?

Deglazing the cylinder isn't required but helps the rings get their own good seal. Check or make sure you staggered the ring gaps on both the compression and oil scrapper rings and that one of the oil rings didn't fold over during installation and get between the piston and cylinder. If by burning oil you mean it's smoking a lot, are you sure it isn't the assembly grease or the oil that was already in the cylinder and muffler from the old rings. If all the parts are installed correctly, let it run a while to get up to operating temperature and see if the smoke clears up, if it's getting fresh oil from the crankcase you won't hurt it to run it long enough to get hot and burn all the old oil out of the muffler. If it continues to smoke, a light honing of the cylinder may be in order.
