Re: brake booster ?

Depends on the pocket depth of the MC you have. This should help you.

Re: brake booster ?

Make sure you relocate the push rod clevis to the lower hole on your brake pedal! If you connect it back to the upper hole the brakes won't release all the way.

Re: brake booster ?

When I did mine, I used the spacer in the mc and the short rod. I felt like the brakes were dragging and shortened the spacer .030-.060 at a time.,it is easier to add washers if you are way tight. The mc should go all the way on the booster without any resistence, you need a little bit of free play, but not much
