Daniel - I think the Wilwood master cylinder just has a pair of brass fittings screwed into the main casting for the outputs. Can't you just replace theirs with ones intended for the slightly smaller SAE inverted flare females to match the lines you have made?

Seth,

It's aluminum with what what I think is pipe thread that screws into the master cylinder. I tried a few hardware stores and some specialty places, but I haven't come across a direct replacement yet. Wilwood directed me to a fitting manufacturer in Socal to solve the problem and I left a message. I'll keep looking, but I wanted to post it here to see if there was something simple that I might have missed.

Amazon - Set of 4 if you need the 1/4" SAE inverted flare.

Found some at my local hardware store. They didn’t have enough for the 5/16 ports, but I got a pair for the 3/16 ones. I think it’ll work a little better because the 3/16 adapters aren’t as long and that’ll make the line bending less tricky. I only have a little bit of the stainless 1/4 line, so I have to make it count!

Thanks for your help and I apologize for hijacking the thread.
