You should also be able to get it re-sleeved, normally stainless steel or brass is used and you never have to worry again. Check your local brake specialist for who can do it.

You can buy them new from http://www.speedyspares.co.uk/ for £50.

They've got stacks of Chevette stuff listed.

Agreed, I rang Speedys about three years ago and the website was out of date then! Looks like it hasn't been revised at all since then either. Bloke on the other end of the phone was very helpful and perfectly willing to have a chat, but did mention that they didn't stock any of the stuff I asked about, nor were they likely to in the near future.

I reckon you could re-sleeve the one you have, or would an alternative master cylinder fit on the servo? Failing that, you could always swap the servo and master cylinder from another model of car - should fit with a touch of modification.

I used to use this place - http://www.pastparts.co.uk/ - for braking bits and pieces.

They do a sleeving service and have also put together their own range of repair kits, plus they do clutch bits and steering parts as well.

Not had anything off them for a few years, but their seal kits were reasonably priced.

cheers guys!
Yeah- speedy are very helpful and friendly!

I was looking up resleeving companys and could not find many- so thanks for the link as they look like a good one to try on monday- and a 48 hour turnaround sounds good!

i'll keep ya'all posted. we miss our chevette already- driving transits aint nowhere near as nice!
