hi guys i put the chrysler style master cylinder on my car that was originally 4 wheel drum brakes now it is 4 disks (non power). i have .25" of play with the brake pushrod with no tension on it. is this acceptable or no?
alright good idea. i was thinking about making my own but didnt know if they were made out of something special or not. if you take the rod and move it back and forth before the pedal would be pushed down is what im calling free play.
1/4 at the rod is too much that would be a heap at the pedal! It should be a few thou clearance, enough for the piston to fully retract. Wind it up with your fingers until it touches then back it off just a touch and lock it up.
