A few years ago a 79mm bore g13b block sold in Canada
DMWDave mentioned 3mm steel liner and 7mm alloy outer
casing the liner from factory.
Therefore 74/75mm g13/g16 respectively can be taken to
79/80 respectively by the sounds of it.
Has anyone hear other than 79mm for sleeve and grouting?

Compression is an issue atm !!! did you just bore stock sleeves or put new ones?

O-ring is recommended but must be tight for space yet bike engines are doing well with
what appears are just MLS style gaskets and ARP style caps

Had to remove old liners completely and installed custom steel liners it is tight between them but should be ok. I'm tuning c/r 13.5:1 so hopefully it works out,I have the arp head studs installed now so read to put the head on just waiting on a deep 12 sided socket to fit down into the head to reach the new nuts that came withe the studs.

Any chance of a pic of your efforts?

Can you advice on the liners you used? The ones that failed and the new steelies....etc
I was just thinking of using cast iron liners from a Vauxhall Ecotec (X20XEV) for 79mm
along with custom made pistons

The liners were about 400 euro.
