Ray pinched two of my V-spec sleeves last year and they ran perfect. Felt better than when they were new. I just sent him my Speed sleeve to pinch. He answered my e-mail so he must be there.

He's there and doing more business than ever. He has the links and order forms on his site that work very well. If you order a recondition service, fill out the form and send it in, he usually gets them done and back out within 48 hours. It may be tough to get ahold of him sometimes, but he is really busy like myself and sometimes it takes a few days to get an answer but like me, he's is pumping out work in a record breaking fashion to keep people happy and answering "did my sleeve get there emails" isn't always priority and most of the time you have it back in your hands before you get a response so your question has already been answered As far as the pinching equipment, not sure what happened there?????? He's always responded to me within the same day or the next so i don't have an answer for you there. At worst case send it to me and I'll get them pinched and if he doesn't answer my email, I show up at his door since he live 10 minutes from me

Guy's always think they have to get a new piston and sleeve. I prefer a resized sleeve and it's way cheaper and you don't have to break it in.

Just wanted to say what a great service i recieved. Ray did take the time to answer me twice as to when he recieved the piston and liner set i sent him. As I was sent standard mail from the UK it took quite awhile, But when it did land with him he mailed me to tell me know.TOP GUY.
He did the work the very next day and had it back in the post to me !! I've just installed it back in the motor and can confirm he pinched it exactly as i'd asked and the motors running sweet as a nut again.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Default From RayA's desk

Just wanted to pop in here and thank all here supporting RayAracing piston&sleeve reconditinoning-resizing services. Also, last month was a bad month with mom passing away that which may have caused me to miss replying a few emails, as stated above. I apologize. Its been a few months since I surfed the racing forums and glade to have caught this tread, along with quite a few others where is talk of my work. Remember guys, call me on the phone number listed on my website (preferably after 4:30pm) should email communication not surfice. I don't care if your a beginner, intermediate, team racers, engine moder or back yard basher my focus is to recondition-resize piston&sleeve sets to "fit" your needs. Thanks again guys!
