[quote=AHood]post a wanted add for parts on some vintage classifieds. theres no way you or anyother back yard types could every properly resleave a cylinder yourself.[/quote]

Ahood-
wtf- are you an a$$hole?
you talk about "backyard types" resleeving a cylinder- yet apparently you have a tough time spelling.

are you as smart as you like to pass yourself off as being??

some guys on here don't have a machine shop at their disposal, so they look for an alternative to paying somebody to do the job.

I hope that I am not being an a$$hole myself- but that is the impression I get from you- if you have advice, go ahead and share it, but don't belittle the guys looking for the advice.

AHood has his head soaked with to much sea water from swimmin` across that salty pond to find them Yam engines. ;)
It is NOT difficult for a rookie to re-sleeve a ROTAX in his back yard, & DOO a good job of it. I have done a few.

If you want to try it yourself, go down to the local machine shop and ask them if you can watch them sleeve a cylinder, it will be clear how you do it if you can see how it's done. It's quite easy. This only thing is you'll have to take it to a shop to have it finish bored...most of the time it's easier to take it to them and have them do it in one shot. Probably won't cost you much more. I believe that some "backyard types" (LOL) are probably some of the best sled wrenches around.

Back to sleeving....most of your aftermarket sleeves aren't going to line up really well with your stock ports. It's gonna take a little grinding to match the ports of the steel liner to the original ports after it's in place...This is highly recommended for best performance. And when you're done with that make sure and chamfer the edge of the ports or the sharp edge of the opening will sqeegey the oil off the rings and you'll be back where you started!

there ya go attack my spelling typical move so i didnt proof read who cares. yeah i probably came across as an a$$ hole. but thats the best advise the guy could get. i have acess to a machine shop, presses, mills, lathes, ect and i dont think i would even be comfortable resleaving an engine. hes far better off bying a good used cylinder for like 35 bucks off ebay or else where and bolting it on rather than spending 100 something bucks for a new sleeve and then trying to install it by himself with out proper tools.

does any one know if this guys engine has cast in or pressed in sleeves. i know yamahas have cast in sleeves and cant be pressed out so they need to be machined out with a lathe or a mill with a boring bar.
