Lincoln mark 4 disc brake rear

Does anyone the correct way to adjust mark 4 rear disc brakes with new calipers and pads. I have the special to to adjust the pistions in, but are they spose to be adjusted all the way in with new calipers,pads and rotors. I also installed a New dual mastercylinder with a one and one eight inch piston. But since was told, I should use a mastercylinder with a small pistion. That smaller will produce more line pressure. I maybe wrong, but I always thought bigger was better. This is a 1,700 lb street rod. with front and rear disc brakes. And everything new, pads calipers,lines,
booster, etc. The front are non-adjust wilwood brakes rear mark 4 disc. This thing should stop on a dime,light as it is.
but it does not. At best its good for a 30 mph slow stop. Will not lockup the wheels. Should I change to a smaller dual master cylinder.
