The Master Cylinder in my '67 SS/RS Camaro has failed.   Rust in the bore caused the piston to no longer seal in the cylinder.
A local mechanic tried to hone it, but the rust scoring is too deep to clean up such that a rebuilt piston/seals will fix the problem.
Looks like I need someone to sleeve it.  Question is, who?  Anyone know someone that can do this right?  I've found a few places online (Karp's(CA) and Apple Hydraulics(NY)), but would appreciate info. from someone who has worked with a vendor before and had good work done.  Brakes are too important to have someone do a sub-standard job.  Some places advertise brass sleeves, with others using stainless steel.  Which is better?

Casting number is 5459467, 1" bore, with application code AD.

I've dealt with karp's a couple of times and have had no issues. I went with them because they use stainless, which is harder (and less susceptible to scoring) than brass.

I've sent master cylinders to White Post Restorations (www.whitepost.com) for decades, including several sets of irreplaceable and priceless Ferrari aluminum master and wheel cylinders, and have never had a problem with them.
