i know ill be told dont do this, but its what ever works. go to a shop the has car painting supplies. get some 2000 sand paper. take a magic marker and mark the sleeve, then when you put it in crankcase the mark will be shown where to sand. take it slow.

Put the engine block in oven. I'm not sure the temperature but will expand and will allow sleeve to easily slide in.

Try 250 to 300 degrees for 5-10 min.
