I'm through!

What a fiasco, dropped $250 on parts and now they're all back on my shelf collecting dust. After doing a 2-man bleed on the 1" master, still no pedal. I gave up and went back to my original 2.38" calipers, but after swapping the first one, decided to bleed and see what the pedal looked like. With one of each, I now had a solid pedal, but close to the floor. After swapping both, I again have a nice pedal. I haven't driven it yet, but I'm pretty sure the brakes will s&ck even worse than before with the smaller-bore master. I've e-mailed Wilwood and informed them that these calipers will NOT work with a 1" bore master and they should inform customers of this before they drop the cash and go through the trouble.

Hope this saves someone some grief and cash,
