Half a days work, if everything goes smooth.
And they might work 14 hour days.... :o


Shop here quoted me $410 to supply a sleeve, re-bore, press-fit and hone.  Half a day's work I think he said

I just want to mention, $100 to re-sleeve and liner included sounds cheaper than dirt. Is this a for profit shop or a hobby shop?? I'd be interested to hear how the job turns out.

This is one of two auto macine shops here. If you consider 100E is anywhere  from 1/8 to 1/12 of a months salary here it's not that inexpensive, is it? OTOH, these guys have huge mark ups on parts, and that's where they cash in (40Euro for 1 single 3.5" top ring)

I was last in the US 3 years ago and was blown away with prices/cost of living, at least in the greater Boston area.

Anyway, I still need to source std. pistons as the ones I have are 116mm and I cant find rings, gasket etc.
Also, side clearance is 6-8 thou on top land...
