No, 1275s have a rubber hose and are 1" bore. 948s used a steel line and 
were 7/8 bore. But either will work.

No other than the clutch slave pipe but if you use the 948 slave, no

The rods are the same length for brake and clutch other than minor 
adjustments. But the rods from a 64-66 (3/4 bore master) are shorter 
than the 948 (7/8 bore master)

1275 pushrod is 2-11/16" from tip to center of the hole.
And they are available from vendors on this list.

Yes, the rib case should have that already, and the T/O bearings are 
also clutch specific. 1275 clutch needs a 1275 bearing.
