Default How do you resleeve a cylinder?

I was just thinking, cylinder sleeves are a hell of a lot less than cylinders, But how is it done?

How are the old ones removed, and the new ones put in?

Can i do it myself or do i have to have a shop do it? If a shop, about how much is that going to cost me?


I figure, 100 bucks per sleeve, 60 or so per piston kit. Thats 320 so far, i got a top end gasket kit..

And then whatever it costs to get the sleeves put in if i cant do it myself?

Fuck nevermind, i found some info on it and apparently resleeving a cylinder is not as good as a replated cylinder, and i dont think it will be much less than another cylinder, Cant i send in my cylinders as cores and get newly plated ones for about 200 a piece?

400 for clyinders, 120 or so for pistons, Thats already over 500 in top end work..

resleaving is more expensive than rechromeing.

if your cylinders are stock and unported, you can send them in to millenium, they can send you out good ones, then you pay whatever it costed to fix yours up to new condition. it saves some time. in the winter its worth it but this time of year there is no rush.
dont send anything to millenium. send them through me and i can save you some cash on them. even if its only 20 bucks per cylinder thats still 40 dollars in savings.

Explain these replating process for those of us that don't know.

Granted I understand a fresh coating is bonded to the cylinder, is this then re-machined to place a crosshatch on it? Just a bit of detail would be helpful in the future.

Resleeving requires boring the old liner out, putting the jugs in an oven, and sliding the new ones in lined up properly. Not a do it yourselfer job.

To re-plate a cylinder, they might bore if the grooves are bad, then lay the nikasil in that. They might get away with just cleaning them up then re-nikasil them. If they're terrible they have to put a cast iron (I think?) sleeve in there them nikasil them.

Yes, they then put the cross-hatch in like normal.

I will let you know madcow. Once i figure out what im doing with the thing, Doesnt it cost around 200 for a new cylinder tho? I checked there site out, all i saw was 300 for a cylinder and i can send mine in for core of 100 off it..

So they can fix mine up cheaper than doing the core thing?

Depending on how much it will cost, i may do that, Do you know about how much it will be, or does it really depend on the condition of my cylinders?

Mad Cow has a good point, but if you want the cylinders done sooner than Millenium Tech, call Ryan Eckhoff at Eckhoff machining, he's over by Willmar, MN. tell him Dennis sent you, I have all my cylinders re-plated by him, excellent turn time

How much does that run you over there? Lets not say my clyinders are horrible, but it does have some scoring, i think they look lots better than the pistons do.. Got any idea?

How much did it run you for yours? How bad were yours?

thin scoring doesnt matter, cracks in the ports or deep gouges they just weld up. if there base price is like 180, they usually only add 30 dollars for a base amount of welding. with any luck you can get them rechromed and welded for about 200. but it really all depends on each cylinder because you never know what damage there is that you cant see with the chrome on there.



like ibs said, they remove the old chrome, either machine or chemical depending on condition of the cylinder. then replate it, the replate is a little on the thick side, so then they hone to fit the clearance of the brand of piston you are going to use.
