I'd like to make the pedal effort fairly low. I will do the 4 bolt or 2 bolt and lengthen the push rod, so what ever works best to stop with minimal effort.
Thanks,
Brad

Get a stock type 15/16" diameter master cylinder for lowest effort. I cannot remember what applications work for this, but maybe 80s trucks or vans w/manual brakes. Or, Doctor Diff can help you out. He is a straight up guy and a great source.

I think most of the 70s passenger car power brake applications used a dual-reservoir 15/16" master cylinder.

I don't think I'd want to go that small for 4-wheel discs, but I like a firm pedal.
