I'm running a SBC so it might be a little different... basically, I used a Tilton 1" bore master cylinder and a stock 80-something CJ slave cylinder and hose. I used a Camaro clutch fork and shortened it about an inch to get the right ratio for full release. I also replaced the stock slave cylinder's pushrod with one that I made out of 3/8" stock so that I could make it long enough to take up almost all the slack in the system when the clutch fork spring retracts the slave cylinder all the way in. Tilton makes several different bore sizes in their master cylinders so you should be able to find one that will work. Might even be able to run the stock 80-something master cylinder (I think it's got a 7/8" bore). My clutch is a little stiff but it's bearable. Oh another thing, I'm running an 11" disk so if you run a 10.5" disk, your pressure plate finger ratio will be better and you shouldn't need as much travel to disengage. Strive for disengagement with the smallest possible master cylinder bore for a nice easy pedal "feel"... HTH
