    Sounds like the sleeve is junk after the 'Buick' operation and must be replaced.:o

    I think the OP will be able to reuse his sleeve.

    It really is so simple to heat the bearing and the bushing up in a pan of oil and merely drop them onto the rotor shaft. No hammering, freezing or messing around required.
