Question Pitted cylender wall

Is there a product to repair pits in the tail section of the cylinder wall. It appears to be water damage The front 2/3s of the cylinder is in great shape. The engine runs great, doesn't seem to affect compression. Was thinking of J.B. weld and following up with a cylinder hone to true it up. Any suggestions?

JB weld will work.
Make sure that the surface is VERY clean, and hane after it's cured.
Oh be sure that it is not in the way of the piston rings!

Let it be when the engine runs great, it doesn't harm the engine any further or you want to run it at max speed and power. JB-Weld will work, but you have to clean it very well. Excess can be removed by use of a piston ring.

I agree with John if its not broke dont fix it! Plus the pits hold some oil and help lubricate the cylinder.BobRR
