you can pinch the sleeve by using a pipe clamp. or get it done professionally in the states from OS rocket.

what engine you got?

this guy wanna know if there got other trick instead of pinching the sleeve...

my experience..i have pinching about 3 -4 sleeve. yes the piston will get very tight on the sleeve but the compression is not. when pinching the sleeve is not 100% perfect circle anymore. when piston compress, some of the consumption gas can flow between the piston/sleeve..

the best other trick is, try to use other/different used piston or sleeve. for example my STS piston have wore out. so i use Hyper 8 port piston on my STS sleeve and now it is very tight like new one. i have to break in once more. and the performance is not bad..
