I'm going to rering and install new bearings on the 428. The cylinder bores are all 4.161". What is the best way to break the glaze, use a ball style cylinder hone or a 3 leg Cylinder hone? What grade of abrase?

You should be alright with a ball hone. If you want to re-hone it, which grit depends on which rings you use. I have the stones if you need them.
