Brake master cylinder identification

Hi All

Sorry long time lurker here. I purchased a barn find Locost a few weeks ago and some of the parts have been removed from the car and are boxed up. The car has home made floor mounted pedals and there are 2 brake master cylinders in the box but neither appear to be correct. The mounting holes in the bulkhead are horizontal where as the brake master cylinders in the box are diagonal. Would any one know what the correct master cylinder I need is or who I could speak to to find out. Thanks.

Pictures of the master cylinder, with any numbers that are cast-in to it, plus images of the bulkhead and the homemade pedals would be useful

Do the floor mounted pedals and master cylinders that are mounted to it through the bulkhead look something like: https://www.obpltd.com/product-page/victory-kit-car-floor-mounted-3-pedal-system-cable-clutch or https://www.obpltd.com/product-page/victory-kit-car-floor-mounted-3-pedal-system-hydraulic-clutch

If so, these are Girling master cylinders for remote or integral reservoirs - original Girling ones in a variety of bores can be bought from Merlin Motorsport and Burton Power. The bore sizes are given in decimals of an inch. See: https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/m/girling & https://www.burtonpower.com/parts-by-brand/brands-g-to-i/girling.html
