    Most competant machine shops can put in a sleeve. Last time I asked about it in Oregon it was $40-50/cylinder IIRC.

    It cost me 80, including the sleeve, 2 years ago. Keep in mind this was a one man shop, building race motors for 30 years, very well trusted and approved by the locals.

    make sure that they check the other cylinders around the bad one.Could be some cracks from the damage to the no.7 hole.I think you would be better off finding another block. 350's are easy to come by.Sleeves are ok but can leak.

    A thrown rod does some pretty traumatic damage.
    Why are you trying to save the block?
    Are 350 blocks hard to find in your neck of the woods. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
