While the job has been going together so nicely, this pin turned out to be a whole clip in and out of itself. I'm trying to get the thing out. With any luck, the new one lines up as nice as everything else on this job has. So he's adjusting it a little bit to give it--till it lines up with the pedal in its current location. And then once the brakes are bled, we'll be able to do any final adjustment to make the pedal feel good, you know, get it at the right height and the right amount of play in it. He's just [SOUNDS LIKE] trying out those. He's got the pin partly in and we're adjusting that until everything lines up and you can drive the pin right through. So the final bit of installation on the brake master cylinder installation is the cotter pin that goes in there. Much like the rest of the cotter pins we put in the suspension, this one gets put in bent over one side and then trimmed short.
