Thanks Mikey, I will try the 1 1/16 cylinder first, was over at a buddy's we were yacking and 7/8 is the size on the dual master setup.He is using a 2lb residual valve to keep the pads from pulling so far off the rotors eliminating the need for the quick take up master one front and one rear.He uses this setup on all his hobby stocks and e-mods he builds with good success so it stands to reason we should be able to do it with a stock dual master cylinder, same difference still using two pistons one front and one rear.I will pull the residual valve like you show see how it works if the pedal is still low I'll try the 2lb valves . These setups work well on dirt but you can't use as much brake so we'll just have to experiment.If I can get it to lock up I can adjust bias from there.The best part about the bird cyl. is it is only $29.00 vs. $100.00 for a wilwood which is just a dodge truck master anyway.
