Ok, I sent my block out to the machine shop. He just called informing me that number 5 damage (piston melt down) was too deep and he needs to sleeve it :sadance: . I feel it should be ok :dunno: . But i'm the type that if something needs to be done to one, it should be done to all. You all think this is an acceptable solution that could yeild a reliable block for a successful build up. Oh yes, big plans for this build.
