I searched before I posted.

Oh, sorry to be so presumptious. :oops:

For a 2" piston with 1.5" ports, just take a 2" tee, and a 1.25 " cap, and bolt some neoprene onto the 1.25" cap. Stick the cap in the tee and plug up the back. Reduce the barrel end down to 1.5" and bore out the reducer and stick some 1.5" pipe halfway in the tee. Glue a chamber on and attach fill/pilot.

Goodluck. :)
