Brake pedal won't come up

Post by kokodabobo on Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:07 pm

Brakes work, return spring is fine, master cylinder seems to be fine. I'm running out of ideas as to what is causing it. Once you press it down it just stays and feels stiff and resistant. any help or ideas of things i could do to fix it would be appreciated. its on a 68 with a dual circut master cylinder. thanks

I've got one but I'm not itching to sell it. It's a stainless flat four rack so it's nice. Feel free to shoot me an offer

I have had the problem you have with a pedal assembles sticking. Is best to take out the rod to the master cylinder and check to see if the pedal moves free. If not then go ahead and pull out the assemble, take it apart and clean it. When you put it back together it's best to Wes whit lithium greese. It does not get stiff ini the hold weather. Good luck with it.

Add a grease fitting to the base while your at it then the pedal set will last long time
