  7. tottot liked flat's post in the thread 90 brum brakes.

    This is exactly what I did. Changed the master cylinder as well for the later one with a bigger stroke. You also need to change the rigid pipes from the flexis in the wheel arch to the calliper as the larger callipers are a different shape....
