When they machine the block for the sleeves they do not remove all the aluminum around the factory sleeve and the darton sleeve has to have a strong shelf to sit on at the top in the middle and at the bottom and if the cases are compromised in any of these areas the sleeve will not have the support to stay in place and will move around and drop.Like posted above you are better off buying a used block for 3 to 4 hundred and have it sleeved instead of using a block thats questionable.If you are trying to do a sleeved block by trying to save money by reusing your cracked block---FORGET IT.
