Is there a stainless option for the rear brake cylinders now? Think a rear one might of seized after about 4 years and was wondering if there is any better options now…

There is a company that will put you a stainless sleeve in them, it's on here somewhere, I just replace the fluid regularly and renew the cylinders when necessary it's a simple enough job and the cylinders are cheap too.

Exactly the stainless steel sleeve saves old cars whose parts do not exist.

Past Parts will refurbish old brake cylinders with stainless sleeves. I did get a quote from them but it seemed fearfully expensive to me. In the end, I decided just to use some red brake grease to keep the corrosion at bay.

Edit - I've just looked up the quote and actually it was £60 + VAT + shipping which I guess isn't too bad in retrospect. Problem is that you can get brand new ones off eBay for nearer to £10 all in.

Ok might just stick with the standard.

Many thanks

Past Parts as per Andy's link above are very good & turn work around in sensible timescales, excellent for brake components that are no longer available
