Master cylinder / Pushrod alignment HELP!!!!!!!!!!

#1 Post by jcdrags » Sat May 01, 2010 1:41 pm

The brake pedal (aftermarket)in my chassis car is not aligned properly. The push rod that is aftermarket is approximately 8" long and 1" in diameter it is aluminum and has a clevis at one end and is tapped for the pushrod on the other end, the problem is that it is at a slight angle(3/4") and I am concerned about piston drag. The car was like this when I bought it and it was run for several years like this, ,but it bothers me.
I was wondering if I could take the brake pedal tab out of the clevis and bolt it together like that or would it not be safe, If I could put the aluminum rod up against the brake pedal tab and bolt it together it would almost level the rod out.
