Q:I bought a power booster, how can i adjust the rod, because is a solid piece. when yoy drive for a while, the brakes lock up.
A:Figuring out the length of the push rod is essential in the first steps of adjustment. Next, remove the master cylinder reservoir cap and cover. Two persons are now needed for the following step. One person is slightly depressing the brake pedal, and the second person is watching for any fluid to erupt in the reservoir while the pedal is being depressed. The depression should be between 3/8" to 1/2". This length is the correct length for the push rod. If your car has a dual master cylinders system, the fluid may come out from only the front reservoir. Disconnect the cylinder. Locate the push rod. Now, take your pliers and use it to make adjustments to the push rod. There is an adjusting nut attached to the push rod that you can turn inward or outward in order to shorten or lengthen the push rod. The shim will work to shorten the rod. Use shims only if you cannot make the adjustments onto the push rods themselves. If the rod is too short then remove the original shims. You can also remove the push rod from the booster, and replace it with one that contains a proper length. Now that your push rod has been adjusted to its right size, re-connect the cylinder back into its original position. After doing so, recheck the push rod for proper length. Then attach the vacuum hose also to the power booster.
