Thanks guys, do you think it's OK to go right off the master with 9/16 and 5/8 connectors on 3/16 line, i.e. is it OK to run 3/16 directly into this MC?

Yes, absolutely
That is exactly what I did using a stainless tube nut for 3/16" line with a larger thread to fit the master cylinder directly.
No adapters required!
I bent my own lines, flared the ends, and installed the master cylinder with no leaks at the reservoir.
By the way, Classic Tube Company should have the wider tube nut you are looking for. I would not purchase the tube nut from their major competitor because when I did, it was junk and all galled at the seat. I threw it in the trash.

If you want pics, just let me know and I'll send you some,

I just wanna help

Hey Ron,
Sometimes it's tough to trust a stranger when it comes to BRAKES.

I just came back from the shop with four pics to give you a visual so you can gain faith in what I have shared.

Here goes..,

And yes Ron, my ego required I send you a pic of the red car I took pics of, which happens to be on the COVER and month of December for the Sherwin Williams 2019 Calendar.

Hey Jim,

Thanks again, that's awesome. I'm also building a big block, great minds must think alike! What headers are you running?

Ron

Hey Ron,
Great minds DO think alike.
I absolutely love big blocks, but won’t say anymore about that here in case the LS boys are watching..,

1. Headers.., I fabbed my own using SPDexhaust.com tubing and flanges.
2. My 572 is a 10.2” deck height so header fitment was a pain.
3. So is access to plug #7
4. Since I am fuel injected, with O2 sensors, NO header leakage is allowed (or it would influence my air/fuel ratio while in “closed loop”. So I worked with Randon at Percy’s High Performance to construct really nice header gaskets!
You and I can now purchase them at Summit Racing..,
part number = PHP-66089. My first set cost me $400. But You can purchase them now for $34.99.
5. Please keep me posted. Do you have any more pics of your project?

ps: love the Chevy intake, the really clean look, and the black small hex wide flange ARPs securing the intake.
Are you going carb or fuel injection?
