OK folks, I've attached (3) pics for review. First, this master cylinder is new with only about 500 miles on the car. Should this piston be sitting "out" like this at the end? Second, I've attached pics of the service manual for 69 that indicate the measurement for the push rod (the third shot). It also mentions it on the page that references the disc brake booster (that's the second shot).

Anyone care to comment on the adjustment and/or if the piston should be hangin out like this?

Thanks all...

Yes Mike, heres mine.... & my booster


PS---if you have this booster/master setup the entire assy should be painted 30% gloss black Twocents

As far as the adjustment I think a call to Booster Dewey might be in order.....

Call 'Booster' Dewey: 503.238.8882
Hoours are 9-5pm PST (just missed him as of this posting)

The piston in the 68-69 B body disc brake cars (2226821) is retained by a bolt in the center of the casting

Perhaps I'm missing something...does that MC that has the bolt in it have a piston that sticks out of the end?

Chris, does your MC have that bolt?

Yes, the back part of the piston does stick out slightly.  See above picture that Chris posted.

Gotcha. I hate to think about doing it (again for the umpteen time) but I may have to pull the booster out to do a good paint job...

Yuck..............
