    Has anyone ever sleeved a broken block?

    My local machine shop is confident that he can resleeve my block that has a big chunk missing from Cyl #1. he said that he would use the same type of sleve that is used in Top Fuel dragsters rather than using a 4-tec specific sleeve. He thinks there is still enough block material there to keep the sleeve in place and the sleeve has a flange around the top which will give it extra support. His total bill will be $ 400 (maybe less with cash.) Anybody ever tried this? If I could buy a used block for somewhere in the ball park, I would go that route, but I haven't seen many blocks for sale. I attached the image so you can see what type of damage the block sustained.

    i have had a block where the cylinder was cracked an warped a little.
    got it welded up bored out and a thicker sleeve put in then bored out again. this was on a cc boat and held up fine.

    Yes, I know, but the idea we are kicking around is using a heavier sleeve since part of the block is broke.
