I wonder if the cylinders 'walk ' more with no skirts? With even less gasket surface that could be a problem. I have my doubts but I still hope they work. Sure, I know they work right after you put them together but I expect my airhead setup to last! I still have my doubts about the clyinder walls' thickness keeping up with the bigger bore. Time will tell. I hope for the best. I will be pleasently surprised if they hold their own. Different cylinder casting or not, all of my concerns still come into play unless we get a new case AND heads too. We don't.
