Does it matter ????????? Once an Engine had been pressed hard only a Sucker would Buy it !!!!!!!!!!!
And if you feel that attached to an engine that you need to get a new piston and sleeve, I would think that most would agree that you need a new engine because fixing an old one is not only an Ecominal disadvantage but a waste of time seeing how a Piston Sleeve and a Rod is 2/3rds of the price of a new engine !!!!

A motor that has been through many heat/cooling cycles when rebuilt properly should outperform a new one. Ever hear a full size engine builder talk about seasoned blocks? The metal becomes more stable after it's been cycled...

Sorry Jabroni,
I have to disagree with your statement. Everyone I know rebuilds an engine after the season is over. It is true that when done properly they sometimes work better than they did when they were new. Besides at $700.00 a pop, I'm not going to just throw an engine away, not to mention it being a JP Kangaroo. Those are rare and hard to get. But thank you for your input.
