Yes, you are probably right. I believe the 090 sleeve did not come out till 1952, and if I remember correctly,my father used to tell me of a time in the early 40s, when there was a steel shortage and the N steel sleeves, were very hard to get. Farmers would have their Ns overhauled using 0825 pistons and no sleeves. Back in the day these N tractors were real work horses, and more often then not overworked, resulting in frequent overhauls. This got me wondering, what did the mechanics of yesterday do when the 0825 bore was wore out? And are these sleeves left overs from the 40s? Thanks.
