Cylinder sleeves are used to repair damaged cylinder bores. Some engines have them from factory. Don't know if the 200 had them from factory. Thought mostly diesel and industrial engines had them from factory so engine could be rebuilt without removing block.

But basically they are the bore

Most likely rings, sleeves are to repair the cylinder usually, if you had one so worn or over bored (which is not likely) I would find a different block. Valve seals are bad about leaking as well, if that was the case it would smoke when it starts up and then clear up.

looking in Macs every other motor has rings available for purchase except the 200. All they show listed is rings.

you should be able to get rings anywhere (they are sometimes listed as 3.3L engines) like the local auto parts store, you might want to check and make sure it has not been bored out and has oversized pistons before you buy. Also check the bores and see how they look, if it is a pretty good engine a quick hone might be all it needs before putting the new rings on.

i believe its all original. the guy I got it from pulled it from his wife's mustang for a v-8....After all I have read about the 200, it is the better choice.
