Also you'd be better off sending in an old set of Amals. Quality of the new ones leaves a lot to be desired from what I hear. And if you did get a good set they wouldn't need sleeving for at least 20K miles or so. Actually the slides are said to be chrome plated now so they might last a lot longer than that. Of course, slide breakage due to hydrogen embrittlement might be an issue.
It's always something...

I don't think the wear improvement has to do with the hardness. It has to do with the metals being dissimilar after sleeving. But I ain't no metallurgist...
