The sleeves you need are not engine specific your machine shop will order them by the size they bore the block out to and the size the stock bores need to be.

I've rebuild probably 25 ford diesels thru the years with either Mahle sleeves or had the machine shop make sleeves.

Any sleeve/liner that you find in a catalog for a ford diesel is most likely junk. Some are designed to go in the stock bores and are paper thin junk.

Those sleeves listed in the parts book are "repair sleeves". They were released after blocks went porus and dealers needed a way to fix them. They require boring the block out and installing a sleeve where one never existed.

They serve the same purpose as a sleeve from Mahle only more costly. Last winter i paid $50 per hole for thick Mahle sleeves made in the USA.

Danwi That is what I need but have not found him yet and Thank you.
If you go to yesterdaystractors.com in the Ford Forum, there is a guy named Bern who is a diesel engine instructor at Mount Vernon (WA) Community College that I would consider a Ford tractor expert. He was a long time Ford/New Holland mechanic. I'm sure he could advise you on any pit falls in working on these engines.
