:laugh: :laugh: My reaction as well... but figured if someone here had found one previously buy might have a lead. Custom ones can be made but so far only in bulk.

Thanks though and have an amazing day!

Have you tried contacting "motomatt" on the other forum I sent you a link to? Maybe he can ask the machine shop he used where they got the sleeve they installed.

Yup... answer was there. They ground it down to fit within the closest of the available sleeves... 2.063. The .01(times two) sleeve thickness brought it back up to spec at 2.083. Mine measures at 2.085 right now with my fumbly hands. So looks like it'll work!

Thank you again Charlie!! And I went ahead and donated over there since I got the information I needed. Also will peruse that thread and site for other pertinent tidbits.

Great idea... but trying to stay as stock as possible.

Thanks!

I would just have a crank grinder take off a few thousandths, maybe 2 or 3. The seal will still fit plenty tight.

Forgot to add:  buy SKF speedi-sleeve from Rock auto and save some dough.  SKF p/n 99205.

Thanks Charlie. I'll bring it all to the crank specialist, including the seal, and see what he thinks will be the best approach. This seems like the least(lol, edit) intrusive option so, if the sleeve becomes unnecessary, that would be great!

Thread bump and realignment - I got my v7 Sport cylinders back from Millenium today.  They look fantastic.  Who says beauty isnít on the inside? I like the idea of keeping the original cylinders. It was just over $600.00 with shipping, so still less than a pair of Gilardonis.

So sorry for the lack of posts! There's been progress, although not nearly as much as there should have been.
I was concerned about the crankshaft where the seal rides... there was some pitting and a history of leaks, so after some research and deliberation I had it cleaned up. Ended up only needing about a thousandth off, so didn't need any sleeve.

I have two SKF Speedi-Sleeves if anyone needs them.

Also turned out the crank at the front main and at the rods needed to be takin down to 1st under. So got all that done, and back and installed.

Oil pump, etc installed. Gears on but not mounted. Unfortunately my cam gear does not have the two painted teeth... only one tiny spotch or paint on one tooth. I lined it up exactly as it was, and then turned it to match an image from Charlie and the one tooth does end up where one of the painted teeth should be. So likely it's ok but will check once the head and valves are on to be absolutely sure.
