I'm talking about the rod that actually pushes on the master cylinder plunger.
I'm going to replace my master cylinder today. I've noticed that this "rod" is really corroded with all kinds of crud. Before I go and break something. Does the rod come out. I remember a friend of mine turning his out to make better contact with the master cylinder. I'd like to remove mine and clean it up before I put the new one on.

So will it come off? and how to know if it replaced properly? :nanawrench:

Master installed.

I went ahead and installed the master cylinder. I think that it was a 1969 Corvette that had the adjustable rod inside the brake booster. Mine was really deep inside the booster. Just a nub was sticking out. I put some grease all around it before the install.
It should be ok for now. I mostly just wanted to clean it off. At some point I'm going to take the booster off and paint it. It has this fine coat of rust all over it.
Thanks for the help! :beer:
