Default Cast Liner

Evening All,
Would anyone be able to help me I am looking for a cast liner for my Corbett Williams - measurements bore 5" / outside dia 7" / by 17" long.
I can have it machined locally.
Any help would be gratefully received.

Smile cast liner

Hello I had my local machine man bore and fit liner into a 3.1/3 hp cs lister block a few years ago but for the life of me I can only remember that he got it from a long established firm in Derby. When I remember I will pm you.
Mike Watt.

Andy - from the dimensions you've given it sounds like you're planning to replace the whole cylinder, inside the water jacket? Is there a reason it must be the whole cylinder? The more normal repair if your bore is worn out would be to bore through the existing cylinder, then press in a cylinder sleeve. It is quite likely that the piston is also worn, so the engineers should rebore the new sleeve undersize, and skim the piston back to round - which then just leaves the problem of new rings.

If you use somebody who knows what he (or she!) is doing, this can make your engine as good as new.
