Re: brake pedal sticks

Which booster and master.... What hole is the pedal rod in, is it adjustable in upper or lower and the rod from the booster to the master may also be the problem if its not long enough... Was this a kit.

Re: brake pedal sticks

not a kit , booster says oem repl. made in mehico. master is a federated says rebuilt made in usa. only have 1 whole, freeplay is good. rod was same length on both. but mast. is short right looking 1 but no side bleeders . i tried shortening rod per booster instructions as said too long could cause sticky pedal it made sense. now im thinking u may be right and need to lenghten rod i cut up. that would make pedal come back up. i rebuilt every sevicable piece on frt. end and redid engine bay. it just goes to show no good deed goes unpunished. might try old boos. tomorrow. turned in old mas. so cant try it.

Re: brake pedal sticks

brake stick fixed, rod needed about eighth inch off to match booster at rest pos. also the sleeve that pedal connects to up under dash had gotten gummed up from all the sanding and grinding i did in eng. comp. should have had hole masked off. w-deed it real good and worked pedal off and on. lastly new booster had a lot of (packing junk) where it met firewall ,picked a bunch of it out around the rod to free it up ,thank u skeeter and all who looked at post to try to help. kmejr
