The one I am considering has a 24 mm bore almost 1.0 it equals .996 according to a conversion chart.I already have moved the rod to the manual brake position giving more leverage but for now have a stock 79 camaro cylinder on it with 1 1/16 bore.The stock metric cylinder didn't have enough volume to activate the rears with it's 7/8 bore.Could have been a bad cyl.The main problem with the camaro master is there is a residual pressure valve in it somewhere and the back brakes stay applied somewhat after the bleeding procedure.This master is a disc drum master.After looking at the brake setup on the bird it looks like it is using metric front calipers in the front and simular sized in the rear and I figured it wouldn't have a residual valve being designed for 4 wheel disc.I have used this setup for racing but always with a dual cylinder setup with 1 inch bores.
