Anyone know if a 426 sleeve will press into a 400 jug without machining?

Yes, I do.

No, it won't. But that's mostly because they don't use sleeves. The cylinders are 100% aluminum alloy with Nikasil plating.

Sleeves exist for repair purposes, but all of them require machining to install, since, as I said the cylinder doesn't have one to begin with.

The cylinder is the better way to go. Plated aluminum cylinders have a lot of advantages over sleeves.
