Sleeving Clutch Master and Slave

My clutch master is taking a dump.

It's a job I would not wish on my enemies (I thought worse than heater box x2). I don't want to do it again....ever.

I've already bought a new master/slave/hose.

Anyone think there is value to sleeving the NEW units???

Will this significantly add longevity????

I have had a number of units sleeved. Have some on hand actually. They do last a little while longer. But not indefinitely. Am having them done in a brass type alloy. Have not found anyone to do them in Stainless. If you were looking for a better mousetrap, then research putting a stainless sleeve to one. Not necessary to use the new part if you are doing this. You can send the old one as they usually refurbish as well.

Do you know a good surgeon to help with reassembly? He he he Second set of hands might help.

I'm curious, is that because of the LHD/V8 situation? I have a RHD 300TDi, and the clutch master is easy to access.

There is a company in Virginia called White Post Restorations that sleeves brake/clutch cylinders.
