96mm jugs

I need to find a pair of 96mm jugs for a 1.7 1970. The pistons are like new but 2 clinders have a bit of pitting and I would like to replace them over the winter. All I find is the complete kits (piston, clinders ect.) I just need cylinders. Can anyone give me a clue to were to find them.

I was under the impression that the two litre 94mm barrels were a better choice because they have more material for cooling/sealing than the 93mm 1.8. Is this correct?

It's the 90mm cylinders from the 1.7 that are difficult to hone out to 96mm. And when you do, they are pretty darned thin and probably won't last that long...
