Default '38 John Deere G - Sleeving the block?

Just got the stuck pistons pushed out and one side is not a pretty sight - some deep pitting, especially ahead of one piston in the combustion area. If boring can't clean this up enough can anyone share an experience with sleeving? Is it even advisable? I know it will be more expensive than just boring. Thanks.

Dave Richards - Route 38 Engine Machine Shop in Newark Valley NY sleeved a JD (G I think) block for my brother (Jim). It looked like new when it was done. Jim's customer picked it up to assemble himself, so I don't know if he even has it together yet.

Anything above the top of the piston doesn't matter.
Over size pistons might not be so easy to come by....... .......but it would be a heck of a lot cheaper than sleeving and buying pistons.
