Hello, Kathleen. 

Your calipers appear to be of the design for which sleeving is not
beneficial. See our website at


for information on the different types of calipers.

If you are looking for a turnkey solution I recommend John Slipper at
Goldline Brakes ( www.goldlinebrakes.com ), but I doubt if he'll be
cheaper than the Cardone rebuilds.

We can almost certainly sleeve your master cylinder, and probably save
you money. We do a fair number of Rover masters, but they are rarely
identified as to application, so I don't know from your model what
cylinder it has. Generally speaking, if it is an older (about '68 or
earlier) single circuit master cylinder, the charge for sleeving is
$75. If it's a later model dual circuit, with two lines out, the
charge for sleeving is $85.

Complete rebuilding including sleeving is typically $125 and $145
respectively for single and dual circuit masters, but I will have to
get the year model from you and be sure of my cost for the rebuild
parts. Some foreign car rebuild kits cost more than my typical charge,
so I have to be careful quoting them.

Get back to me if you have more questions.

Thanks for your inquiry.
