Good thought process, but I wouldn’t worry too much. The engine was designed to last thru 30k gallons of fuel.

3208 series are parent blocks- no sleeves. If you have to do an inframe, you may be able to bore in place- but, given its NA, I wouldn’t worry. It it were the TA 435 version, I’d be slightly more concerned about longevity.

Clean fuel and oil, keep it cool, you’re golden.
