Re: [T3] Brake Pedal Set Up

There should be a little bit, like 1mm free between the end of the rod and
the pedal when it is fully released.
That is to make sure the MC 'is' fully released.

i just looked at the bentley.
the 4-7mm is free travel at the footpad of the pedal and the 8in
is how much travel from the pedal to the floor. I think you can just
ignore those measurements unless the pedal has been screwed around with.
Just set the pedal so there is a small but definate gap between the
pushrod and the pedal when its fully up. like it says 1mm.

on a bus you change the length of the pushrod to do it, on a type3 you
move the pedal. same adjustment.
