You can't change those sleeves. That aluminum came from your pistons. Scrape it out . Call it good. And give it a hone. This is my last post pep. Hope you see it. Can't take the ignorance. Good luck here. I will email you and send some parts your way. Barry.

I tried removing the sleeve and failed so bad. burned up a pair of gloves and smoked up the house. I ended up having the sleeve redone at a pro shop for $250 bucks. Arrgh!
But it's on the way to going back together now. Thankfully.
Once it's running again I can get back on Cecilia. I'd really like to drag the boat with her.

Sleeve is done and I'm putting him back together. Sooooo satisfying. Powder Puff is ready to go fishing again. Here's a pic of the crankcase all buttoned up. I learned a ton on this project. Let's hope it still runs when I get it back together and doesn't just blow up haha!
