Brake pedal linkage

Postby andy-harris » Thu Jan 11, 2018 7:53 pm

Hi all,
Just started to dry-fit the brakes and the adjustable rod between the brake pedal and master cylinder looks like this. Am I right in thinking that this is goosed, or should there be a bend here?

Cheers Al,
The way it's bent made me imagine the previous owner maybe nearly rear ended someone, despite how hard they were pushing down...
They were definitely dodgy went I drove the car up from Ashford, 10 years ago.
I'm in North Bradford, that would really save me a lot of hassle.

Thanks.

they usually get bent like that when somebody force's the master cylinder out of the floor, to repair /replace instead of sliding it back 1st,
