I have a h22a1 aebs sleeved block and i have 3 good cylenders and one bad cylender, it was due to the c clamp on the rist pin not being done correctly and i have scaring on my 3rd cylender wall. the piston was chewd up pretty bad and i wanted to know if it is possible to have that one sleeve replaced ? i will put up pics soon.

Why don't you just port the one cylinder?

how exactly do you port a cylinder?
OP are the AEBS sleeves one a one piece unit or are they separate?If they are one piece, I don't think you would be able to do what you are wanting to do. Sorry I never had a sleeved block dude. Good luck though.

The Darton / AEBS setup is a wet-sleeve system, where individual or multiple cyl sleeves can be replaced, without having to re-do the entire sleeving process all over again. So yes, you can buy an individual sleeve and replace. Contact your machine shop that did your install and inquire.

individual sleeves can be replaced. most reputable local shops can do it if aebs will sell the sleeve separate.

how bad is the scoring? depending on the cost of the pistons you used, it might be better to get a larger bore piston set and just bore out the sleeves. the costs involved are:
labor removing the old sleeve
labor installing the new sleeve (usually ~200$)
the cost of the sleeve
cost of the replacement piston

vs.
new piston set
boring out all the sleeves
