  • Power brakes on 1961 hawk

    Is there a way to get the brake pedal higher, The brakes work fine and I have had them adjusted however the pedal is low when it's engaged.the 1961 hawk has a rebuilt booster and all brake hardware, wheel, master cly and lines are new, am I missing something?

    Check the adjustment of the master cylinder push rod.

      Do you mean that there a lot of travel in the pedal before it engages the brakes? If the pedal is just closer to the floor than you like I believe the power brake Hawks had a different pedal than manual brakes- was lower to the floor by design.
