I looked over my smoky flaky compression motor closer last night and saw
that only the one piston is new, the other three look like a mixed set of
used ones. Also I have scores in at least one bore. Now I'm thinking about
biting the bullet and buying a new sleeve/piston set.
Am I dreaming to hope that you can just buy the set and install it without a
lot of complex measurments and having things machined to actually fit right?
Is it tough to actually get the sleeves to seal up right, or can a non
engine savvy guy follow the directions and get it to work?
I read through the section on changing a sleeve in the Haynes manual and it
didn't sound too bad.
