rear disc brake ques.

With the installation of eldorado rear calipers on my '50, I need a quick take up master cylinder. Does anyone know which gm cars used that type of m/c besides the caddy? Will a late model camaro or firebird m/c work?

Quick take up started getting phased in in 83.

Cars that I know have quick take up MC's
Latter B-bodies have 1-1/8"
F-bodies do too but the ports are on the passenger side to clear the strut mount.
Later G-bodies have them too but I don't remember the bore size.
S10's used a 15/16". Good one to use if you are worried about having too much peddle effort. Manual brake master has a smaller primary bore than the power master.

Good specs along with pictures can be found on www.napaonline.com
