What about the sleeves being marked A or B from OEM?

those letters represent different sized pistons correct?

Ots pistons are supposed to all be the same size out of the box right?

So I can't see how people think drop ins are close enough.

I know guys that buy engine components and assemble short blocks without taking a single measurement.

Its been explained to me that its close enough...

I'm like...WHAT?!?

Dood even questioned my machine shop as to whether or not they are just taking my money and not doing anything but assembling the engines...even though I have video of my block on a line bore machine and the block under tq plates getting the sleeves honed.

His ignorance is followed up with a stone ball hone on the other end of an electric drill for the sleeves to get hatching back. I'm like Dood...I've done that and burnt rings up stupid fast. Ball hone is too aggressive.

What guys will do to make money on the backs of people who don't know better.

Sorry, I have a conscience. And I don't think my machinist is ripping me off.

PS my engine is still running..
