Mk2 Escort rear brake cylinder diameter

Hi,
Can anyone confirm what the rear brake cylinder diameter is for a Mk2 Escort? Both Gregory's and Ford manuals say 17.8mm, but some on-line part catalogs say 19.05mm, such as Burton's for the RS2000. I'm of course leaning to the 17.8mm, but have a nagging suspicion about whether it is actually correct, so I thought I'd check here first.
Thanks.

    Aus. Mk2's, including RS2000, are 3/4" (19.05mm). 
    I put 13/16" (20.64mm) in my Mk2. They were new PBR cylinders listed for a 1975/76 1.3L model.
    That gives 17% more piston area!

    Do The RS version Have bigger diameter rear brake Drums than the standard Mk 2, hence the bigger cylinders?

    Aus. RS2000's have the same rear cylinders & drums as the standard 2L.
    My previous post should have said "Aus. 2Litre Mk2's, including RS2000's, are 3/4" (19.05mm)
    I don't know about the 1.6 Mk2.

    So even Ford is inconsistent (between their repair manual and the microfiche). I also thought all Mk2s used the same diff and rear brakes; at least by mid-77 when the 2000cc engines were added to the range. No wonder I'm confused.
