Cyls are worn almost +.010 above the .060 mark. I suggested he find another block and keep the origional in storage. If he sells the car just give the new owner the orig block and let them decide if the want to try to save it. That idea was not a good one to him.
He wants me to sleeve all 8 cylinders back to std bore. Which I am nervous about doing, putting in a sleeve or 2 doesn't bother me but 8 of them . I was going to use 8 thin wall sleeves (3/32) if i do venture into this. Any words of wisdom
