Just replace the sleeves with the .040 sleeve. You end up with the same piston size anyway.

Don't even try to "bore" out the sleeves and don't even try to peel them out with anything. Get a sleeve driver set and drive them out and drive them back in.

I've had some recent success with liquid propane freezing and shrinking the new sleeves before installing them.

Of course you need to be extra careful not to be around any source of a spark or flame if you use the liquid porpane. Boom! If you're not careful!!!! Never ever try it in a closed building of any kind. Out in the open air is the only way to do it!

The .040 sleeves you get now are cast iron just like the .090 sleeves and are not steel like the original sleeves.

I've personally not seen a steel .040 sleeve in about 45 years????

Just called "Just 8N's" parts, the .04" thin wall sleeves from TISCO are shiny steel not grey cast iron. The part was actually pulled from the shelf to check the material.

That should be a good sleeve to install. I've not seen any steel .040 steel sleeves since I was a Ford tractor parts man in the early 60s.

They were a lot easier to remove.

My brother in law bought a new 8N in 1948 and we made 10 crops with it before it had to be rebuilt. I dismantled the engine to do the rebuild in our dealership and the sleeves were so worn there were gaps worn in them at the top of the ring stoping places on all four sleeves and it still didn't smoke or foul plugs. Did use a little oil. Those little tractors are the best thing Ford ever made.
