Yes the master cylinder is different in that it doesn't have a residual line pressure valve in it when used with disc brakes.


You can get the residual line pressure valve removed to convert the master cylinder for use with discs.

Remember the all important handbrake cable too.

It's in the port where the brake line screws into the master cylinder.
