WC you are right on about all accounts.
--wet sleeves mean the block has hollow spots inside and when you pull the sleeve you can acutally see the water jacket. All old AC motors are wet sleeve.
--dry sleeves are inserts into a solid block. i believe the ford 8N, 9N series is of this type.
--you can put bigger sleeves in the WC, they are called WD45 sleeves. I dont happen to know the full details, but i think you need the WD45 sleeves, pistons and crank and i believe it just falls into position, just dont mix and match parts with the WC. YOu cant bore the bock oversize and put in bigger sleeves. Block webbing in the water jacket is not designeed for this. You really need to talk to Deuy or one of the WD guys for the exact details. Might even be able to used D17 parts, but im not sure if they go all the way back to fit the WC. They will fit the WD.
