Default Sleeving FM 118

Did one today, the first in a while. This one still makes #2112. The Rotler boring bar is such a good machine, still runs true after 2000 jobs. Glad to see things picking up out here again.

Ripping and pressing in the new. The ram is from the front of a road grader used to angle the blade. Here it’s used to pull the sleeve into the block.

Man that brings back memories. I worked in a shop about 20 years ago where we sleeved a lot of these engines, 118s, 208s, 346s, and 503s. We also sleeved 6 1/2, 7 1/4, 7 1/2, and 8 1/2 Ajax cylinders. We used a 999 Van Norman boring bar for those.

I’m not there to look at the model but it was the largest portable they offered. Was a custom order too, extra long column.

I’ve got 2 Van Normans too. Never used them.

Yes, I’ve done Ajax too. I finally got to where I could mill the ports where they lined up 100%. Then that went away all together.

Yes the 999 had a taller column. The 8 1/2 Ajax was 22 inches long. Lots of fun cutting the ports in the sleeve to match when installed.

Mr. Reed, what is the ripping for? Are you removing an old sleeve?
