Why would you want to rebore your cylinders ?? wjat year is the bus and engine size ..air cooled...i am making the assumption it is the ild air cooled bus you are trying to can take the heads to a machine shop to be checked to see how worn they are or out of round..aometimes you can jusst home them and use oversize rings ....but of you want more power you have to be careful how large you go can have overheating issues...i belive they use sleeves . have to have someone change them and install correct piston and rings
