Shaft Repair Sleeves

Crankshaft Repair Sleeve 16256

Shaft Repair Sleeves

Worn or damaged shafts in your engine can lead to fluid leakage that cannot be fixed just by replacing a seal. When replacing a seal to correct a leak you should also consider all aspects of the shaft that it runs on since worn or damaged shafts will not provide a proper surface for the seal. Basic options for repairing a worn or damaged shaft include replacing, repairing, or re-machining the shaft, all of which can be expensive and time consuming.  Another option is to install shaft repair sleeves similar to the one pictured here.  These sleeves have the potential to prolong shaft life and restore worn and damaged shafts to create an original, high quality seal surface.

Bristol Automotive Parts has an inventory of shaft repair sleeves that are applicable to many older vehicles. If you have a grooved or worn shaft in your engine, search our inventory. You just might find a fast and inexpensive option to repair your car.

Master Cylinders

A1 Cardone Master Cylinders

Master cylinders are control devices that convert brake peddle pressure into hydraulic pressure. The master cylinder controls wheel cylinders located at the other end of the system in the brake calipers and/or drum brakes. The wheel cylinders push brake pads towards the surface of either the drum or disc rotor, causing friction and ultimately bringing the wheel to a stop.

Piston bore wear and piston seal failure are the most common problems that occur in master cylinders. The most common symptom of a failing master cylinder is a brake pedal that slowly sinks under pressure. The cure for this is to replace the master cylinder.

Bristol Automotive Parts, Inc carries a wide variety of A1 Cardone master cylinders for both newer and older vehicles. Many of our older, or vintage master cylinders, are available through our on-line store.


If you don’t see a master cylinder for your application, contact us using the contact page or call us during the regular working hours posted at the bottom of this page and we will happily check our complete inventory for you.
