If an engine has been resized once can it be done a second time?
Thanks, Roy

Roy,
I cannot give you an absolute yes or no as to a set number times a Piston+Sleeve set can be resized . First most depends on sealing surface finish condition. Second depends how much sleeve was resized the first time. With that said on one hand I receive sets that which have ingested dirt , requiring material removal my "RECONDITIONING" sealing surface finish to an acceptable state, included with and fallowed with a great deal "RESIZE" in order to reestablish a "necessary" good seal. On the other, I have guys sending sets for a freshening up regularly before a big race, with great surface finish condition, that which only require a mild resize for their requested "light" / "Light-Med" tightness, and no problem at all servicing "twice" and even "three" times. OF CORSE you must look at your engines complete "wear" factors, also the bearings, crankpin, conrod, wristpin.
In short, when in doubt, My customers ship sets to me and await my first incoming inspection.

I could realy get wound up on this topic but will stop here, keeping it simple to the point, with hopes this helped.

I'll be home in the shop Tuesday.

Thanks guys,

Ray

Default Working Late

Rubine,
Your order went out today. Seldom do I see sealing surface finish conditions as good the sets you shipped. Do share the fuel you use along with other preventive maintenance by you. Good example!

Yes, Your order is on bench now and should be completed and return shipped back to you in Turkey sometime tomorrow. Likely late in the day as a 5, 7, 4 set order eachtakes alot of working hours to complete , and my being happy the detail + accuracy reviewed in my final inspection.

Orders on the bench are Alain, John,Steve, another Daniel , Ashley, and Jon. Expected return shipping all packages late day tomorrow.

Thanks Ray, I run Powermaster 30% fuel with Benol added to the mix, I also use PJ1 super tacky air filter oil and seal my filters on both end with grease for better sealing. I also toss air filters after every outing and have a Pro tune on the motor ( courtesy of Graydog328), hope this helps.
