Crankshaft Sleeves & Installation Tools

CLASSIC offers total product quality with state-of-the-art die manufacturing and in-process controls. This insures that CLASSIC Sleeves are the finest available.


Rebuilders have always had a major concern with a groove worn in the crankshaft by the seal. A CLASSIC Sleeve gives the shaft a new surface for the seal to function properly.


CLASSIC Sleeves Offer The Following Benefits

1.   CLASSIC Sleeves are manufactured using 430 Series stainless. This provides a very tough and durable surface.


2.   CLASSIC Sleeves are polished at the factory to a surface finish of 10-20 Ra. Tests have shown this to be an ideal finish for the seal.


3.   CLASSIC sleeves are polished to a specific manner, creating a pattern that leads the surplus oil inward to the crankcase.


4.   CLASSIC Sleeves can be repolished, if desired.


5.   CLASSIC Sleeves are also available in "Undersize". These are know as "B" part numbers. The "B" sleeve is installed on a shaft that has been ground undersize to the specification provided. Once installed, this area is now back to a standard size. An added benefit to frinding undersize is that all groove wear is now eliminated instead of being "covered-up" which insures proper heat transfer.
