Default Top Hat Sleeves for my xk 4.2 and other goodies

Hi All,

Where can I find top hat sleeves for my 4.2L block? I'm also going to need head studs and head hardware etc. without putting me in the poorhouse.
Any direction would help.

Thank you!

I would think your main cost is going to be the machining of the block to allow a lipped liner to be inserted. This will involve a full strip-down to a bare block.
Here's a set on eBay: -

Thanks Fraser,

The block and head are already at the machine shop. It's turning out to be more reasonable than I thought at around $2000 for hot tank, decking, line honing, balancing and blue printing, flywheel lightening. I'm looking at $1000 for 6 sleeves though...and another $350 for head studs. Jeez! I also want to replace all of the other intake/ exhaust/ head studs too. Nobody seems to sell a complete package.

Anyway, thanks for the link.

Ron
