Default Sleeve pincher

Anyone know where to buy a high quality sleeve pinching set? Just something I can pinch different sleeves with. All .21 size and maybe some .28s.

I found this guy on ebay selling sleeve pinchers. He sells several different sleeve pinchers for different engines. I haven't bought or used one but if you get one, let me know how well it works.

thats a good deal for that price, but I dont trust myself to do a pinch to a expensive engine. I think your better off sending it to a pro to do it

Rararacing is the man!! Best I've used.
And he does sell the equipment so you can do it yourself.

Unless you got a fleet of engines, it would not be worth buying the Ray tools. As for pinching, I have seen very good results from Maxy from Maxy's Fuel.

Just spend the $15-20 that OS Rocket charges instead of ruining an engine that costs $200-300 or more.

that is actually a bearing retainer, not a sleeve pincher. I used to work in a machine shop, we had a ton of those things around, so I used one on an old engine, not a good idea. Those things are very touchy. I went too far and ruined a sleeve, thank god it was old.

If you had a few days, lots of patience, and your really lucky you might get one of those tools on Ebay to work, or not.
Like someone said, unless you do alot of engines your better off sending it to someone. I usually like to rebuild the whole motor for people. I have seen quite a few motors that people tried to fix on there own only to find later a bearing was bad or the crank and rod were worn.
I only charge $40 to rebuild a motor, this includes pinching, bearing replacement, cleaning, etc. Of course if it needs bearings or a rod the parts cost extra. Alot of people like the way I pinch a motor because they don't have to rebreak it in, it ends up about like a motor when you done breaking it in.
