I have a really nice 400 block bored .030, decked, and aline honed. The problem is when they were honing it somehow they hooked the top edge of one of the bores with the machine. It cut a notch about half way around the bore maybe .080 high and .030 or.040 deep. My question is can I safely put a sleeve in to fix the one bore. I've had really good luck with sleeves on other motors just wanted some opinions on the 400's. Thanks for any help.

We have run a 421 with 5 sleves in the block. As long as they are done correctly there should be no problems.
