1962 laurentian Brake Cylinders - alternatives?


Hi all, so while waiting on pricing on NOS and antique Chevrolet for brake cylinders, I found a set of fronts for a 65 Biscayne, which look very similar for the exception of the bleeder screw is shorter...

i'm going to check them out tonight they are WC37079 and 78. It is 1.1875 which is the same as my car,

 

the rear cylidners for that 65 Biscayne look same also except the inlet is centered and not off on an angle... just throwing ideas out because Im impatient to wait for pricing I like to see the alternatives.

i'll update and let you know what I find tonight...

cheers

Tell me if I'm wrong, but don't these brake cylinders (for '62 Chevs/Canadian Poncho full size) fit several years prior and several years after 1962?

What i found tonight was interesting! the WC37079 and 78, (sourced for a 65 biscayne, friends car) are a very close fit.
the anchor ring at the top is a slight bit larger than the originals. I, working in a machine shop am going to turn a quick spacer and carry on with the $18 wheel cylinder. see picture.
the rear cylinders have lots of room for a straight pointing brake line port.


The napas in my area call for 3 days delivery on their wheel cylinders unfortunately, and, the carb kit arrives tomorrow :)
