Default After max oversize rebore

Sorry for hijacking your thread....but I have a Yezdi Roadking but the engine bore is out of shape and it's already at the maximum oversize, so reboring isnt an option.
I am looking for a new engine.... please let me know if you have any info.

I am from Bangalore.

And really nice work. I'll be following this thread closely
Even if you have rebored engine to max. oversize, still you dont need a new engine, instead you need something called cylinder sleeve/Liner. As the name suggest a sleeve is nothing but inner lining of cylinder(a pipe), which can be inserted into cylinder bore, to restore original material dimension.

If it is not available for yezdi, try liner from a simlar bore & stroke length. if you get nothing try extruded circular section of steel of desired size & machine it to have smooth surface, followed by honing.

Happy rebuilding!

Thank you

I am aware of liners. I even asked my mechanic. He said liners arent available for the Roadking.

And could you elaborate on the other mehtod ? "try extruded circular section of steel......" ?

I think the problem will be solved by changing the Cylinder Block to a new one.

I have read somewhere that sleeves for such engines are not available & the sleeved engines are no good.

Not if the guy doing it knows what needs to be done. Many yezdis running well with sleeved blocks. Not everyone can find a brand new cylinder block.
