No, Kris, I'm looking to replace the oem Philips-head screws with Allen- head screws. The previous owner had butchered the screws, probably using too large Philips screwdrivers and they've gotten worse each time I remove them to bleed the brakes. I only use JIS screwdrivers.
oh, I see. a good idea. but if you are careful, Philips screws will work just fine. you can probably fit them from any MC. I believe that they are the longer type. I am surprised that allen screws are not standard; people tend to strip the philips ones. and by the way, ins't the MC in the Gen1 the one people tend to complain about, because it is 15mm and gives too much wooden feeling to braking? if so, you could perhaps replace it with the new one, which is 14mm. I personally fitted radial Brembo, but it is rather expensive.
