Good idea, Jason - thanks!

I didn't remove the head studs, but couldn't I leave them in, and use a big washer, and a spacer (like a piece of pipe or something) and a nut on top to hold the sleeves in place?

And, a related question: should I have replaced the studs? (I really don't want to, but I will if necessary.)

Yes a piece of pipe and a washer will work fine. I wouldn't replace the studs because unless they have been over torqued at some point in their life they are stronger than the Chinese steel replacements you get today. When I did mine I did replace all the nuts for the head studs and I put hardened washers under mine. Why? That an old engine building trick. A hardened washer will let you get a truer torque reading and it spreads the torque out over a little bigger area. You don't have to do that though I just like to do it. Like others have said I would squirt a little oil or ATF in each cylinder. If you have the cover off of the oil pump pack it full of Vaseline so it will pull oil as soon as it is cranked over. If not just crank it over with the key off until it starts pumping oil and you see oil at the rocker arms.
