So the 1600 came with the 265 engine,and that's a wet sleeve engine right? There was one sold yesterday, it looked like new, but had a little more white smoke on start up, than i thought it should have. It was a Estate sale and his brothers said he had it rebored, they had to bore the wet block to take 283 sleeves, so can they do that?

$4,000 on the money,he had about 4 brother's, one is a good painter, it looked really nice. But i suppose now M@W is not in the picture. But if he stayed with Oliver pistons and sleeves he would of had to bore it then ?

The 3-7/8 sleeve and piston set were for 1600 GAS tractors. In the 1950's M & W had some 3-7/8 sleeve and piston sets for 88 diesel tractors. I took more out than I put in when I worked for a dealer. No you didn't bore the block. My e-mail is open if you want to reply to me. Do you have any Oliver shop manuals? The sleeve and piston set for a 1600 diesel will cross over to a sleeve & piston set for a Super 88/880 diesel. I am probably older than you. I started worked for a dealer in 1960.

When I taught school if the kids disagreed with me they would say you need to change what you are smoking. M & W offered a set of 3-7/8 sleeves and pistons for those blocks for the gas engines. Since the blocks are the same no boring would have been necessary.
