I have a 15/16th master cyl that I am pretty sure will bolt up ( I will check on my Zed first today). Asking $60 + postage.

Got some modified 240Z struts to accept R32/300ZX 4 pot calipers with Valiant crossdrilled discs and have coilover sleeves and been shortened too if you want a quick bolt on package. Calipers are available for about $220 a pair.

I can do a front 4 spot set with new pads shipped for $200.

They bolt on.

ok, so this 15/16 MC I have is off a early 80s Patrol.  It will bolt on to the brake booster, but, the brake lines won't bolt into the bottom.  On the zeds, the brake lines attach on the bottom of the cylinder, where as they attach on the side of this one.
So if you are willing to pay for it to be done, or can do it yourself, then ill sell it for $40ono, just to recover some money (was a little miss informed when I bought this).
I am however, going to sell my rebuilt 15/16 280ZX MC.  It has not been used since rebuild and will bolt straight in.  $150
Im selling these as I am going to upgrade to a 1" MC.
Obviously Peter gets first choice here :D

you'll need the larger MC in any upgrade of the braking system I'd say
