Master CYlinder manual or power

I did search this.

I have a T-bucket. The master cylinder is leaking. The one in there is a Raybestos 39174, 1980 Fairmont, specs say manual brakes. The specs for the power and manual replacement seem to be the same, 7/8" bore same outlets. The cost difference is the power brake m/c is about $30-$40 and the manual $100-$150.

How can there be such a difference?

Can the power be used?

Thanks,

Bill

You don't need a power M/C on a "T" bucket, why don't you just rebuild the one you have?
