Hi all

 

I have increased the sizes of the front calipers on my Corsa B, from 48mm to 57mm, and i'm also looking to change the rear drums for discs from the Corsa C (bias adjustment required).

 

All well known modifications on the Corsa. Also well known is the 'feel' of the pedal, It has been advised to change the master cylinder for a Cavalier MK3, however, getting hold of one is proving difficult, and mods to the cylinder itself are required.

 

Anyone know of a reverse look up for Master cylinders or servos that I could use to improve the system, without too much modification?

 

cheers

 

Ryan

I am looking at a few variations bore size 22.2mm and 23,8mm and different size fittings M12 or M10 so knowing what you have fitted now is a must.
