    Had a little accident with my 951 cylinder

    So i dropped my 951 cylinder and chipped a corner of the sleeve off. Do you guys think it will be ok to bore and run it or do i need to have the jugs sleeved?

    Thanks

    re sleeve it just to be safe.

    I agree. The most common failure mode on a 951 is dropping a piston skirt, which then gets chewed up by the crank with catastrophic results. The 951 has tremendous pressure on the skirts, your chip will lower the effective support area for an already marginal situation.
