[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.

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