A friend of mine told me a trick to remove stuck sleeves.I haven't tried it yet but the time is coming!Take a 6010 or 6011 welding rod and run a bead up the sides of the sleeves in a couple places.They will crack on the welds and slide right out.I have also heard of shrinking sleeves in liquid nitrogen for installation.Nitrogen is much colder than dry ice but it is harder to handle.

Remember that the welding trick really only works with dry sleeves. I've never had a problem removing the wet sleeves.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
