No. Just pull the head and pan. I just changed the ones in my Super 55 about two months ago because they were leaking bad. They're a lot easier to pull than dry sleeves.
I hope you don't run in to what I did. The old sleeves and the block were pitted pretty bad. The sleeves were so bad that I ended up putting new ones in. I filled the block with JB Weld then ground it back out smooth with a Dremel. I don't know if it was really necessary to go that far,but my son works in an engine machine shop and does this stuff for a living,so I did what he recomended. He said too,that when I put it back together,instead of using liquid soap for a lubricant,use plumbers pipe dope compound. I did,and along with the new sleeves and the JB Weld,as rough as everything was when I tore it down,it doesn't leak a drop.
