I have a SCJ block with 71K miles on it, when #1 cylinder wall broke and was sleeved. I never ran it since. The bore is just under 4.440 at 4.4395 and all cyclinders are freshly bored and honed. The machine shop did not press the sleeve all the way down to the ridge he left at the bottom of the bore. He claims its such a tight fit it will never move. Personally I would have it re-sleeved but he claims is fine. The deck has never been cut, and the lifter bores are really tight (good condition). I don't know what this is worth...I hear the caps alone are worth something. I've seen sleeved DOVE 4-bolt block go for over $600 on Ebay. Make an offer. Steve
