Re: sleeved wheel cylinders

[QUOTE=Frank Miller;1768423 If it was a loose fit then you certainly would have fluid leaking behind the sleeve. I thought of machining a groove with a lock ring to prevent this but a properly pressed in sleeve should not have this problem. At least I would not think it would.[/QUOTE]

Both sides showed signs of leakage on the small side of the wheel cyl. Its the large side that blew out on the left side of the car. I too thought about adding some kind of locking ring, but think best to just go with cyl that are not sleeved.

Re: sleeved wheel cylinders

If you want to try and save them, there are retaining compounds made by Loctite that work on interference and slip fits.
