    opinions please

    Hi all,i bought a msx 140 project,with a partially stripped motor,anyway one of the cylinders need replating,so i will be replacing the pistons.
    however has anybody bored out the nikasil and put in an aftermarket oversized piston(spi snowmobile piston) is it possible to do this without resleeving the cylinder?
    many thanks.

    No go. If you bore the nik away, your rings will be riding on aluminum. They need to be reniked or sleeved.
