Local machine shop with many years experience on engine work uses the same press fit technique. Once the block is prepared and sized, the sleeve is cooled in a freezer then pressed into the block and everything is allowed to come to room temp. The ID of the sleeve is then bored to the desired size, usually back to standard. Then the only way to remove the new sleeve is to cut it out with the boring machine. Stan

Engine reassembled and installed. Rehoning was sufficient as now runs as it should with do drips, no runs, no errors.
Appreciate all who provided assistance and opinions during this ordeal.
THANKS LARGE!

Just curious, was the sleeving reasonably priced?

My local guy referenced above says about $100 per cylinder. Don't know if that's reasonable or not, interesting to hear from others. Stan
