The brake pedal shaft is splined at the end where the arm, which connects to the master cylinder, is. Undo the bolt on the arm, and remove it, and then wiggle (it'll probably be a bit stuck on there) the brake pedal assembly off the arm. You can then adjust the height you need it at, and make finer adjustments to the amount of brake lever travel with the adjuster on the master cylinder piston rod.
Sorry for bringing back a dead topic, but hoping someone can shed light here.
I'm trying to get the master cylinder off the spline so I can adjust my brake pedal height down, but it is thoroughly jammed in there. Got the clamp nut loosened and have been beating at the mechanism with a hammer trying to slide it off the spline. Got it moved about 3mm, but no more. Any advice?
Figured it out. Pinch bolt needs to be completely removed, not just loosened.
