Hi guys. Have a .030 over bbc stock block and a piston let loose. The rod and pin are still swinging and there are two nice holes/cracks on each side of the pin where it came in contact with the bore. Can this type of damage be sleeved? Also looks like a hairline up to the top of the cylinder from one of the holes. I know its hard to tell without a pic but was just wondering. Thanks!

Yes, and will be fine if done right. Nothing wrong with a sleeved block.
Depends on where the crack is. If it permeates into the deck near a head bolt hole I'd junk the block.

AMEN to that!!!!!! I had a block sleeved once by a Shop that did not even machine a step in the block to keep the sleeve located properly. It cost me a lot of $$$$$$$$$ to have it corrected so my #8 cylinder wouldn't fill with water..
