Re: cylinder sleeves

There is a guy in australia that "SAYS" he has gone 60 thou with sleeves. Personally I can't see the point in waisting the money on the 1.3.

So, it is possible to do it. What you need to do is take your block to a mechanical engineer to bore it out to the specified thou you want and have them make the sleeves to suit. You might also want to note that it will be hard to get pistons to suit. They will more than likely have to be custom fabricated.

Ring some people and see what they can do for you. I have no idea as to the level of mechanical engineering knowledge you have. So I'm not sure what work you can do yourself. Oh and there won't be anyone in the world (that I know of) that will sell the sleeves "off-the-shelf" to you.


just some food for though and my 2.2c worth. In my 1.3 (before it blew up) I had a 30thou over bore, larger pistons to suit, shaved head, ported/polished, inlet tweeked a little bit, isky cam and K&N....It went like a rocket.

Re: cylinder sleeves

tks guys, I think I will check a machine shop down here and see what they can do for me. See the problem I have is that down here if you swap engines you have to go to the motor vehicle dept. and have it inspected and register and that's a big pain. So I have to fix this baby or junk it and get a new sami.
tks

Re: cylinder sleeves

Go to this sight. You may can order the sleeve here and have someone put it in for you. I've resleeved motorcycle cylinders but never an engine block. It is a common repair in engine building business. I have a 240cc kit for a yamaha blaster that came from these people. Super porting job too.

Re: cylinder sleeves

I see your point, many states here require you to have the Vin number changed if you change your engine too. Most people either don't know that, or don't tell "DMV", however, When Ol' Shep was a Pup, and these motors were hard to come by, we checked into having them sleeved to keep from buying a new block. They do make sleeves, and a good shop can install them, via the "hot & cold" method.

It's going to "cost", but still should be less than a New Zook.

Good Luck

Re: cylinder sleeves

Make sure it's a GOOD shop ! Once a BAD shop installed a sleeve in a MC block for me - got it too hot & ruined the block .
