60 Master Cyl Rebuild Kit - Suspicious modified design - is it ok?

Bought the Delco rebuild kit on Rock Auto - I think this is alright as the hole from the reservour above feeds into the lower spring area past the pistyon area but just in case I wanted to post here. Maybe you can explain?

I've done many of these. If the housing isn't rusted and can be honed clean they work great.
The old design those tiny holes the size of bailing wire diameter pass all the way through.. This design you see has this tin flange riveted onto the backside now positioned to cover the holes.. Maybe there's no need for the fluid to occupy that relief area??

I think that design adds a small residual pressure, Not really needed but doesn't hurt either.

Thanks Ken - Now that I think about it - Seems it's pretty flexible. Just the slight touch through the holes with bailing wire it opens - leading me to believe just as you say - allows for better downward pressure against the fluid as a check valve. Should make for a firmer pedal..
