Block news

So, it turns out the sleeves have dropped slightly in the cylinder causing the leak. Because the head was decked last time i was off, but the block was not decked with it there is a slight variance and apparently not uncommon when removing the head for the first time in a sleeved alloy block.

So the bores are getting a hone, and new rings are going in as well as bearing most likely.I was using CP rings with the CP pistons but have heard there may be better out there, but I may be limited due to the 90mm Piston size. Time for some research...
