Just to clear this up.  The JB1419 is not a 15/16th MC, its 1" and is a Patrol replacement, not 280ZX. 

However it will fit all of the early zeds, I know, cos I have one in mine and its SOLID!! lol

It may be a little too much for some brakes though, so keep that in mind.

Oh! That means I have to ask;

Is a 1" JB1419 going to be "too much" for the Hi-Lux callipers on solid rotors at the front and the standard rear drums?
I don't foresee myself doing any further brake upgrades than this.

I note that your car (Scott's) has;
"Front brakes LN105 Hilux 4 piston calipers with DBA slotted rotors
Rear disk brake conversion, R31 callipers"

- so when you say its "SOLID!!", should I assume that it will be TOO SOLID in my car?

*edit 21/1/2011* - My solution was to buy a new Nabco reproduction 79-81 280ZX
Brake Master Cylinder from Rock Auto USA for A$221.64 delivered.

I think it would be personally, but maybe someone here who has tried it could shed some light?  I remember my standard 7/8th MC was not enough for the Hilux caliper, so I reckon the 15/16th would be perfect. 

BTW, I have a 15/16th that I'm about to put up for sale ;)
