I have several Breather Pinions in my spares box; some have a bronze sleeve, and others have an alloy sleeve. Are there any informed opinions as to which is better to use?

Don't think it matters Dick but the Factory did the right thing by discontinuing the early one-piece version-I had one fail on the road. Thought it was a stripped ATD pinion to start with!
