Hi Guys, It's the smokin Allis B again. Quick question. Let's say I decide to replace the pistons and cylinders.Could this be a backyard job.Or will I have to rip the engine out and take it to an automotive machine shop.Heads done,new clutch,rod bearings good. I am just looking to drop the pan,yank the head and go to it if possible. I have never replaced cylinders on an engine. I have tools,torches and welder to fabricate pullers. I would really appreciate any input.I will listen,I don't want to make any more mistakes,or get in over my head. Installation seems like the scary part? Thanks, Dave

Smokin' - I think you are doing the right thing by changing the pistons and sleeves. If there is more than just a little trace of blue smoke now and again, it's not due to lack of break in time. If you can find a shop that has done this before and is willing to share his experience with you in detail, I wouldn't be scared to try it myself. I have never changed sleeves before, so I have no personal experience to offer. Cleanliness would certianly be an issue - do you have a garage to do this in? If the swap is done correctly, two things are for sure - no more smoke, and probably more power. Sounds like a good thing to do to me! Good luck, and let us know what you decide.

Dave, you may want to check my previous post under "smoking AC B" Also, the advice about the oil bath air filter is good. Be sure it is CLEAN and that there are no restrictions in the air flow. (I recommend 20w-50 oil for the oil bath air cleaner, just my opinion) Good luck. Gordon

Sounds doable. Get all the books you can. Get the I&T and AC service books, ge a parts book, try to find a dealer that can help. If the rod and main bearings are good, then yuo can do just what you want. Pull the head, drop the pan, and go to it. Biggest worry for removal is keeping the crank healthy while pulling the sleeves. Biggest worry reinstalling is dirt. Shouldn't have any problems with tolerances, because you aren't changing anything. Have to keep every little spec possible out. Once you get started on the together part, don't stop. Set aside a block of time where you can get all 4 sleeves and rod/pistons in at once and the head on.know the specs you need and the tricks and tips before you start. Maybe have a cheat sheet with numbers, orders, etc. Two special tools you might need, a ring expander (not required, but nice) and a ring compressor (required). Both can be obtained at auto stores or maybe Sears. Just go for steady, clean, thorough work and it shouldn't be to hard. Best of luck and post any questions.
