The volume will be more at same level of pedal.

At same hydraulic pressure the pressure at your sole of your foot will be higher.

If you swap disc brakes to a drum system you need more volume, and pressure.

Modify the linkage at your brake pedal will be the solution

Good luck, Kay
Thanks for setting the record straight turns out you are right! Just another good example of how you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet.
