Default Pinching Sleave Guide

Hi,

I have read previously a guide to pinching the sleave and piston but can't find it now when doing a search. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Step 1. Send the piston/sleeve to Ray-A-Racing or OS Rocket with requisite amount of money.
Step 2. Wait...
Step 3. re-install and break in after they return.

Leave it to the guys with the good tooling. It's worth it to not ruin your race day/weekend trying to get a messed up engine to run correctly instead of racing.

follow steps 2 and 3, but first send it to Alan Burton at the Speed Shop, he has a thread on here, he will get you taken care of quickly.

Cooper, pinching is something that can go south quickly. Alot of your guys use a hose clamp type pincher, or even the clamp style both of which can make your sleeve out of round. Some also pinch to far down and/or are not tapered to do the job correctly. I will say the above mentioned are credible companies though from everything I have read.

I have within the past several months started a company called the "speed shop". Check out the thread in this forum. I have the same tooling system that Adam Drake uses and it does a great job! I have a lot of good refrences and turn around is pretty quick on something like that.

To do the P/S it's $20 and you can just send the entire engine minus the the clutch, flywheel, etc. We will clean up the engine, bearings, etc.

$60 and we can do the pinch plus install front and rear TKO ceramics.

Just check out the thread and let me know if I can help!
