Repair Sleeve

Repair Sleeve Operation:

A repair sleeve (also called a speedi-sleeve) repairs or restores a worn oil seal surface and is usually installed on a rotating shaft to cover a groove worn in the sealing surface caused by hardening of the old oil or grease seal. The most common uses of repair sleeves are as engine harmonic balancers and an engine's rear main bearing seals.
