Bleeding Hydro-Max Brake Master Cylinder with Motive Products Power Bleeder

I have a 2000 Pace Arrow on the F-53 Chassis Ford V-10, which has a Hydro-Max Power Booster brake unit. The master cylinder has two caps, each with three tangs that close with about a third twist. I planned to replace the fluid in the entire brake system, so I bought a Motive Products Power Bleeder with the Ford 0107 attachment cap to fit on the master cylinder, thinking that it would be the right fitment, since it's a Ford engine. It has the three tangs, but won't fit on the master cylinder, being too large to fit into the opening. Have any of you out there used a Motive Product bleeder tank with the Hydro-Max unit, and if so, what connecting cap did you use?

I would contact the manufacturer and explain the situation. I am sure they can furnish the correct part.

Hydro-Max is made by Bendix and has been used for years by Ford, GM, Navistar and others so it's not necessarily a Ford part.

After a call to Motive Products, the tech guy thought that it might require a Chrysler fitting, which is 1 5/8" inside cap diameter. I measured my cap and found it to be that size, so I've ordered the Chrysler adapter. It turns out that the Ford cap is 1.98" inside diameter. Thanks for your replies.
