    Wilwood 7/8 master cylinder

    I ended up needing a 1 inch bore master cylinder for my set up. If anyone thinks they could use this 7/8 master, its got a whopping 1 week and two test miles on it. No issue with it, 7/8 just wasn't pushing enough volume to the calipers I'm running. All of the fittings, hardware and cap are new and unused. I swapped all of the original fittings and hardware to my new master so that I could include these unused pieces with this unit.

    $200 shipped.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Greg are you using a non power brake setup because I am trying to figure out what's best for my application I'm using 14 in Aero 6 in the front and 14 inch aero in the rear.
    I am currently thinking I will stain on power do to help tight clearances where my master cylinder meets my speedtech down tube subframe braces
    Just wondering what others are doing with similar Hardware

    I am. Its a 1964 Corvette and I'm using Wilwood's D8 calipers which are Corvette specific. According to Wilwood, these calipers have a significant internal volume which is why I was running out of pedal travel and bottoming out the piston with the 7/8 master cylinder. I would call Wilwood and ask them what size MC they recommend for those specific calipers in a non power application if thats the direction you're trying to go.
