How do you tell if you have chrome or steel cylinders? Are the cylinders actuly sleeved? Do I have to remove the cylinders to determine this?

Look into the spark plug holes as described with a light. The chrome cylinders will look like they have a million little cracks in them. Also, some chrome cylinders were painted orange at the bases, where they bolt up to the case.

Just remember, chrome cylinders use steel rings, Steel cylinders use chrome rings.

If you change a cylinder from chrome to steel, or steel to chrome, you have to change rings.

Good Luck!
