There is no doubt that doing a quality engine overhaul requires careful inspection and measurement of worn parts and the reconditioning and fitment of properly sized replacements. But the chances of standard replacement sleeves not fitting properly in a 134 block is miniscule. The vast majority of DIY'ers (and probably a lot of professional shops) simply buy standard replacement sleeves and pistons without measuring and +99.999% of the time they fit fine. That was after all the design intent of using replaceable liners in the block.
That said the kit being offered to the PO is not an especially good deal. You can buy an in-frame Super Power sleeve kit from YT (no bearings) for $305. IMO at $250 it is not worth purchasing the PO's kit as an on the shelf spare for an engine that doesn't currently need an overhaul. In fact I don't consider the 5-6 cubic engines of added displacement worth the $50 premium YT wants for the Super Power kits.
