Default motive bleeder for 929 master?

Is there anyone here with a 1" 929 master conversion that knows which motive bleeder adapter fits? If so, comments on how well it seals? I am considering the 929 master instead of the 15/16 NB master but for convenience I want to be able to keep using my motive bleeder and don't want to be stuck messing with one of their universal adapters.

Sorry, I don't have a 929 unit, but if you don't get any responses you might be able to figure it out from measurements alone:

and

Application Guide

Lastly, you can always just get an extra cap and make your own adapter with their DIY kit:

Or just bleed the brakes like a real man and get a better bleed.

Ever actually used a power bleeder? It's vastly superior to the 2-man method and way, way faster too.

Don't ask questions you know the answer to.

I've only had to show people who got a crappy bleed from their $100 waste of money how to do it the correct way. Those things get me so much free beer and a free leg day, I hope they never go out of business.

Ah, no. They work perfectly if you know how to use one. I haven't bled a Miata without one in years, and I get compliments on a routine basis on how good the pedal feel is in my car.

Wow, you must have dumb baby legs if bleeding the brakes via the pedal counts as leg day.

It's the color of intelligence

(Seriously, though, it's a Sonicare, because much like the Motive bleeder, it also turns a repetitive physical activity into an easy-button activity.)

I just swapped over the reservoir from the original master cylinder, that way the low fluid switch connector was the same.
