If you're talking about a cylinder which is split along its length
from being forced on the mandrel with too much force (one
with only one crack - not one that is in pieces) a technique that
had a lot of currency in the 70s, and which I had good luck
with on the one cylinder I tried it on, was to melt the back of 
the crack with a soldering iron.  It works better on a ridged-
bore cylinder than a smooth-bore one, since such melting will
invariably produce an uneven surface that will need to be
sanded or honed down.  FWIW.
