Cylinder wall crack??

I bought a 1948 Farmall H. I am tearing the motor down and took out the sleeves. When I removed the sleeves, I found a few hairline cracks in the cylinder walls. They dont appear to be deep, because there is not any water or rust stains on the backside of the sleeves. What action would yall take, Resleeve or what??

I'm guessing that's why it was sleeved in the first place.

you can actually grind deep into the cracks and JB weld the cracks. then send the block in for machining to get the JB weld machined smooth with the cylinder wall! good luck
