Whats up with SS sleeved calipers, do you buy the sleeves and insert them or do you need a complete upgrade of the caliper?

The caliper needs to be machined and the sleeve pressed in, buy the calipers.

Does it make sense to convert to o ring without ss sleeves?

no, the main issue is the cast iron bore, it will rust & pit, compromising the seal. No seal in the world will seal a pitted bore.

PM send, but I think shipping will kill my budget.
