Seems like a simple proccedure if u ask me, and ur engine must be screwed if u already wana pinch it.

So get some clamps, stick the piston in the sleeve, and make sure it is like atleast 3mm from the top of the sleeve, then stick it in your oven, for about 2 minutes at lowest temp, i would think would be good, (remember after it is warmed up) and it should pinch it, and work, don't be worried, if your already worried about pinching, then screwing up the P/S shouldn't matter.

P.S: When i stop by my buddies place, were going to try and pinch his sleeve, i report on how it goes, and tell u if the engine worked.

I have a couple of those sleve pinchers. They work OK. They can screw up your piston and sleve if you don't do it right. I use it for friends that don't want to buy a new piston and sleve; or those that want to get a little more compression from a worn out motor. If you really want to get more from an old sleve, send it to be reconed. rayaracing.com/prodresize.htm
They rebuild the compression cone in the sleve. I think it's way better than what a sleve pincher could do in the very long run.
