X2 on the weld method. I just run 4 beads up each sleeve, on quarters. Makes pulling much easier even if you are not doing it in frame. Be real careful not to penetrate the sleeve!

It pays to make up a decent puller too. I had one turned to fit the bottoms of the sleeves. Drilled a 1" hole in the puller and used 1" ready rod to do the pulling.

When you are ready to re-assemble, put the new sleeves in the deep freeze over night. Put a 60W light bulb in each hole over night. Take the sleeves out one at a time and put in the warm block. Have a chunk of hard wood and a hammer handy. I have had them slip right in, no pounding or pressing required doing that. But you have to move quick, those sleeves warm up real fast.

Oh ya, get a couple of cans of brake cleaner and make sure that everything is clean as a whistle.

Good Luck,
