Another hack job strikes again...

Another hack job strikes again and it's a single steel sleeve. What makes this even worse, whatever shop carried out these repairs had the other 5 cylinders re-honed with an RA finish of 50-60!

A stock cylinder has a finish of approximately 3-4 µin. The steel sleeve had the best finish at 15-20 µin. It had no hope of ever surviving.

The other cylinders were in dire need of being replaced - the other 5 cylinders were out of round by .004-.005" - wear limit is .002"!

 

Don't assume anything and quantify everything.
