I was removing the sleeve in my 8n engine block and the sleeves shattered as they were coming out. Someone had inserted a set screw through the sleeve into the block. Most likely because the sleeve were loose? Has anyone seen this and is the block now useless?

A similar procedure was done to an 8N block by a reputable machine shop 60 tears ago, No lock tight then. Look how long it lasted!! Not in your favor though!!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I've never seen that before. They must have notched the pistons so they wouldn't hit the screw.

Sleeves 1 through 3 had set screws though the sleeves into the block near the intake valve. Cylinder 4 sleeve has not been removed. It is a larger "OD" then the other sleeves and I did not have the tool to remove it. I am taking the block to a machine shop tomorrow to get their opinion.

I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
