New Power Booster and MC Question
I installed a new power booster and master cylinder tonight. When I went to install the master cylinder, the rod for the booster was protruding a couple of inches meaning the piston in the MC had to compress quite a bit in order to get the nuts onto the studs. I don't recall having to do this on other cars, but it's been a really long time since I've had to install a new MC. I checked the old power booster and the rod stuck out the same distance. Checked the old MC and it was identical to the new one. Is this okay? Will the booster contract somehow when vacuum is applied? I'm only half way through the job. I'm going from a single-reservoir to a dual-reservoir. I need to install the new lines tomorrow night and then I'll know what I'm dealing with. But I don't want to put fluid in the thing if there's something wrong.
