Master Cylinder Push Rod Alignment was created by Terry Cockerell
While I had the car on the road I had suspected that the master cylinder push rod was out of alignment as there was a leak but it was difficult to check while under the car. During the car's first ever complete restoration I was stunned to discover the push rod was out of alignment by 1/4" It had obviously been this was since it left the Factory. I could have moved the master cylinder out from the chassis with packers but decided to modify the push rod clevis. I have also found some other Factory faults as the cars were rushed into production but will leave them for another day. The master cylinder shouldn't leak this time.

Terry this is an interesting observation and fix. Am impressed. Something I surely will be watching for when I reach this part.

Do not hate me for saying this as I commend your fix, but I think someone has the Pedal arrangement assembled improperly.

John I would have liked to agree with you but the parts were assembled correctly. They can only go together one way.

It looks like the arm the brake pedal attaches too needs to be turned around.
Pedal should now line up better as well.
