hmmmm, I wonder If I am using the right pushrod.  I am pretty sure that I used a stock manual pushrod, but maybe I used the push rod from the power break set up.

I have the new style MC as pictured in the link.

Pushrod just affects the pedal height, not the effort.

That said, you should ensure that your pushrod is properly restrained. The factory manual pushrods have a rubber grommet to keep the pushrod from coming out if you lift the pedal.

If you are driving, bump the pedal up and your pushrod comes out...it wonít end well!

@Cudajason with manual you cannot be using the power one. Power brakes use 2 short shafts that cantilever.
Bore size will make a difference.

Buy a 15/16Ē master cylinder and youíll wonder why you didnít make the swap sooner.

Does a smaller bore equate to higher line pressure for same pedal movement?
