Re: Does anyone hee know where I can find a sleeve for the ignition lock cylinder?
I'm guessing that you're driving a 67 or 68?? The "sleeve" that the cylinder fits into is the ignition switch. You can get them from any resto parts place. At Rick's 1st Gen, for instance, the 67 and 68 switches are P/N's S-7 and S-8 respectiveley. You can also still buy these from Standard Motor Products, a line sold by many 'jobber' type parts stores, and the 67 and 68 P/N's are US-43 and US-54 respectively.
If you have a 69, then you are looking for the steering column 'cuff' or 'shift bowl'. That's gonna be considerably more expensive and harder to find. These used to be available as a repair part straight from GM since they always got smashed during attempted thefts! (I used to be able to call my local dealer and ask for a "Roxbury tune-up kit" in the Boston area and he'd know just what to send me!)
