I'm thinking this may be my best route.
I'm going to keep looking around to see if anyone has a spare cylinder as one of the cooling fins is missing a chunk anyhow but they seem rare as hens teeth.

I'm not, by any means, in a rush to get this done. I have a matador, an r90 and a 63 vespa to tend to this year.

I got these parts all waaaay before I actually expected too! I'll proceed with the bottom end and test out some new "in house" blasting methods. The bottom end actually spins freely and very smooth, so that's a nice relief. Hoping I didn't damage anything else!
The sleeve could have actually been fractured before I began freeing it up but that's neither here nor there :)
