    Is this cylinder boreable in your opinion? CE3CB07C-005D-4765-9EAC-E4B7770796B6.jpeg 569F617F-D275-47CE-9B37-4F921FB597E3.jpeg

    No, almost certain it will require a sleeve...

      The engine was seized right? Don't break your head trying to repair that, use new sleeves.

      I was planning on rebuilding the 318, taking into consideration what type of work was needed.

      No offense intended but I don't see where a 318 is worth that kind of expense to rebuild. You can still find good running 318's pretty cheap. I've an '89 with just over 100,000 on it that runs perfect, uses no oil. I'd be hard pressed to get $300 for it still running in the car. I'd find one like that, put a timing chain in it, clean it up, paint it and go.

      Unless you need to have numbers matching for whatever reason, I would have to agree with peabodyracin that the cost of the rebuild would be much much greater than that a good/great running 318 and a lot fewer man hours involved.

      Correct, seized.
      This is my first endeavor into any type of rebuild. Thanks for the advice.

        I was planning on putting a 318 back in there, but will now rethink my original plan for a 383. Thanks for the input.

        Take always this into consideration, there are two ways to fix this, one is to adjust the pistons into the cylinder: boring, and the other is to adjust the cylinder into the piston: sleeves.
