Default Jag Outboard brakes

Hi Bob,
While Im a loooong way from installing the outboard brake unit, I did check, and the 12 rotor assembly does fit in my 15 Compomotive wheels. The brakes use a 48mm single piston (sliding caliper); will I have to change my rear master cylinder, and if so, to what size?
THANKS,

Dan

No change necessary. Once the pads are bedded in, test the balance and adjust the balance bar shims. So far, we've never had to change anything.

I believe the rear brakes are smaller than the large front brakes. Might check those in the wheels also!

I think you misunderstand...I've had my car together for 12 yrs and am merely working on a new rear, similar to the old XJ6 Jag, only the brakes are outboard.
Thanks anyway, and thank you, Bob.
