You may have honed the liners with a brush hone, but any rigid hone would spin them in the block without a torque plate. Any other clamping method will distort the liners resulting in out of round bores. .

F--K IT, I'm going to go ahead and put all the liability on the machine shop. This is there job and what I retained them for.

You may want to warn them that even if the liners seems like they are secured in there, that is actually just corrosion holding them in place...and they make break loose once they put any machine tool pressure on them.

Right thing to do is have them pull them out of the block (many machine shops will heat the block to get them out without damage if they are really corroded in there) and hone them. After that, yes, you will want new liner o-rings. Or you can go the sealant route @4sfed outlines earlier in this thread.
