Does anyone know of a good quality place to have a sleeve put in a master cylinder bore? I want to use the original master cylinder fom the car I have. Appreciate any help.

White Post Restorations near Winchester,Va does them. Look in Hemmings under "services offered" and you may find some one closer to you,I think 3 or 4 venders advertise every month.

I had the master cylinder for my 1971 Charger R/T done at White Post Restorations and was very happy with the results. They'll get it done within 1 or 2 days for you. http://www.whitepost.com/brake.html

I've had work done at both White Post and Brake & Equipment warehouse. I had a better experience with Brake & Equipment and will use them again shortly.

100% Whatever you do, never send White Post a '70 E-body disc master cylinder if you want it rebuilt with the correct parts...

BTW- how badly pitted is the bore? If there is minute to no pitting where the seals ride, it will be fine with a quick hone job.

ding-ding-ding - That's what I did. The thing that really got me about White Post was the attitude I got when I tried to get some details about the service they performed. I think the guys name was Billy. The guys at B&E are great to talk to and know their stuff.

What is the normal price range for them to
rebuild your master??
I know it all depends on what you send them but
maybe a ballpark price??

IIRC last year it was in the $75 range at Brake and Equipment to sleeve a master cylinder.
And at least another $75 on top of that to rebuild it after sleeving.

I had my master and all 4 wheel cylinders sleeved for about $300 by Sierra Specialty Automotive in northern CA. The pistons in all 5 were frozen, and I got no extra charge for removing them.

For a pricing chart, see:

http://www.brakecylinder.com/index.htm

Discounts are listed below the chart. Example: 10% off for master with 4 wheel cylinders.

With brass sleeves in the master and all 4 wheels plus stainless brake lines, I'm expecting no rust pitting ever again, and just the aging of the seals to be the only long term maintenance issue.

In some cases, sleeving is the only way to save original Chrysler equipment.
