I've rebuilt a couple of them and the trick my dad showed me works......support the engine upside down(like on horses)on the head surface....and take your welder on meduim to low heat range ...make 4 passes oppsite of each inside on sleeve.....if they don't drop out a little tap with small hammer and block will do it....this will drop out the most stuborn sleeves there is..!!

good luck...

You should be able to drive them out with rod about 2 ft long and 3/4 inch diameter. Position the rod on the edge of the sleeve which protrudes through the block. The sleeve may get damaged, but if you are putting new ones in it won't make any defference.

No, tricks - just a sleeve puller! In the recent archives there should be a posting w/pic on a home made sleeve puller.

Sounds like you got some tips on removal. A sleeve puller would be your best bet if you are going to reinstall them but that probably isn't the case. Here is a little tip on installing sleeves. Put them in a freezer and leave them in there untill they are mighty cold. This will cuase a little contraction allowing them to go in block a little easier.

Also hang a trouble light in the block. All you need to install them is be to real quick and use a wood 4x4 and hammer

My dad always said to put the sleevesa in the freezer for a couple of days and then wait for a hot day so the block is hot and then install quickly.Good Luck

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
