I agree with previous posting, Hemmings Motor News has many ads for companies that sleeve mc, slaves, etc. Most have a fast turnaround. Usually they only want the casting w/ no pistons, springs, etc. My preference is for brass sleeves instead of stainless steel. SS never seems to allow the seals to seat where brass does. I sleeved a MC in a 47 ford 27 years ago and is still in great shape. (I changed the mc kit several times) always a good seal, no pits. hope this helps.

There is some slight pitting in my '68 1600's master cylinder. Enough that the brakes will slowly lose pressure at a stop. No one seems to offer the stock master cylinder anymore. All later bmw m/c's have the outlets coming out the bottom and I don't want to make short u-intermediate lines untill I exhaust all other alternatives. Any ideas?
