How to get brake pin back in place once you find you canít remove it
I made mistake of trying to remove brake yoke/push rod when replacing master cylinder. Even though the manual said you could do this, the pin can not be removed on a 68 with manual brakes and clutch IF the pin was installed in the wrong direction. After I found I couldnít remove it, I couldnít get it to go back. Iím sure many here know why and itís obvious when it out on floor but I couldnít see it well enough up under dash and couldnít find anything googling sites. I found reference that you canít get pin out but not anything on getting it back. So this for whoever might do same stupid thing.
The return spring is on a retainer which is on the pin between brake and yoke. You can push the pin out far enough for it to fall into the groove in pin for the retaining clip. If you relieve the tension on it from spring you can wiggle the pin back into place.
