Mine was 60 over and had to get sleeved. Machinist said he busted through around 0.08 over.

I guess the sleeves are supposed to wear slower than the cast block, so that's a bonus.

Hey Guys! Got my motor back from Jimmy's and got everything back in the jeep over the last few days. Also added a desert cooling kit. Should have everything buttoned up and running this weekend!

Also during the middle of my work the little Mama had to use the opportunity for a little photoshoot that she's been dyeing to do

Been driving around town with the fresh rebuild that Jimmy Strauss did on my MB motor and it purrs like a kitten! Last weekend I was able to ditch the solex carb and picked up a military carter to rebuild and the correct rear dana 23 and installed both.
On Saturday I loaded up the jeep on the trailer and took it up to Icehouse rd for some family shooting and cruise on some trails. Faye is 7 months old now and didn't even flinch while I was shooting the 1919a4! Proud dad of this brave little girl!
