If you want a big bore cylinder get it from Cuervo with the bigger water jacket. If you go big bore you'll also need studs and a SCE head gasket.

FYI, years ago there were a rash of sleeved cylinders that after a few hours of expansion/contractions of dissimilar metals, the sleeve would slip out of position.

Have you checked your cylinder? It may be good! If you want reliability go with factory bore.
Dez you are awesome, you literally have a response for EVERYTHING! I am going to send them my old cylinder. I am trying to cut cost... The work they do seems top notch... Now if i could find a good used head at a decent price, i'd be happy. But ebay is full of heads at almost the price of a new one.

I have a used head and a used cylinder I could sell. What else do you need?
