    pimp my caravan brakes - hydraulics sizing question

    hey guys, got a vintage caravan off a mate and am doing the brakes and shit so i can use it.

    atm i got the wheel cylinders reco'd, replaced the copper brake lines with bundy, but am stuck on the master sizing.

    the old master is a vintage PBR unit and is seized to fuck, so i cant get it apart to size up atm.

    brakes look like E/H series holden? wheel cyls are 1" bore over the usual 5/8"-3/4" sizing.

    its only single axle. so im thinking 7/8" master?

    anyone a hydraulic sizing yoda that can confirm or deny?

    TIA. off to douse the old master in diesel...

    If the master cylinder is stuffed, why not cut it in half and measure the bore? Itís going in the bin anyway.

    Usually the bore is cast into the body of the master somewhere?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Yeah i had a good look over it but nothings cast in like usual. There is a tin plate rivitted to it, but the info on it has long since rubbed off.

    I'd go with a 7/8", a 3/4 would be too small for those wheel cylinder sizes.
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

    If you want a new axle with leccy brakes, give me the numbers and I'll get a price. The last lot went really cheap.

    Got a bit of a hookup with holroyd.

    PS, dont you know some cunt that works at Barker? Surely there's hook up there?

    1964 the van was built!
    For sure, that was the plan all along. So you reckon 7/8 is the go size wise?

    Yep. The van needs a full resto. Will look into stuff like that if we go all the way.

    rough eh? They're that good we have to go up there and measure our trailers to make sure they have built them the right length... and that they are square and dont fall apart the 1st time you load them.
