I have never been overly comfortable with a sleeve.. Don't know why.. I just never have...

I bet a good block would be cheaper..

How much is a bore and sleeve?

I wouldn't sleeve it. A good core block shouldn't be that hard to find and should be cheaper. Some people give them away.

Totally agree, no reason to sleeve one of these blocks.

If anybody wants a buildable, stock bore 1978 2F block, it's on the scrap trailer out front. There's a good head on it too. Come and get it. Located central Ohio.

Bought one with (only?) 100 k on the clock in austin recently for 500. 9 hr trip, one way, had to buy a 900 dollar trailer for the beast once there because I couldn't get it in the Tundra without possible damage to the beast of a motor, the pickup, or both.. Ever ask yer self, "what the hell am I thinking?" Anyway, the 2F is home, I have a new utility trailer, and nobody died.
