I was working from memory, but just looked at ETK and realized I got something backwards.
I think you first have to screw in the brake light switch adjustment screw to lower the brake pedal (may have to get a longer screw), THEN adjust the clevis at the master cylinder so that the piston is down far enough to release the brake.
I had lowered my pedal a little bit years ago, trying to go over it in now memory. I lowered mine about 1/2", think it is possible to go more, but not sure how much before the master cylinder clevis runs out of adjustment room.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
