Excuse my ignorance....is no one punching the old chrome liners out and pushing new iron liners in?

One set is ugly, the other is marginally useable.

The way I see it, If I had one of my sets of chrome bores replated , that alone would be like $420, new rings and clips would be about $150, which comes to $570, which isn't even $200 less than all brand new parts. I'm generally about as tight as a coat of paint, but I don't want to fuck up and regret this, so I think I'm just going to do it.

If these lemans jugs in question would have worked on this T3, that would be different to me, as a failure in these parts would only mean some piston slap, and some oil burning tendencies. Using old chrome bores just seems crazy to me, the more I think of it.

Thanks again for all of your suggestions.

Fair call. Maybe new parts is seeming like a good idea

Chrome isn't on a liner as such, it's on the inside of the barrel. It would be possible to bore them right out to accept an iron liner I guess.

LA Sleeve still does iron liners. But when plating in Nicasil is close in cost and much better functionally, why do iron?
