Post Chevy booster question

New to this site, and looks like a ton of information. I have been working on a '72 Chevelle for the past 3 years, learning as I go. I purchased some brake parts from a shop so I could convert the front drums to disk. Install went great until I attached the master cylinder to the booster. When I stepped on the brake pedal, there was no travel at all. It looks like the rod that comes out of the center of the booster is too long. After I checked my GM parts Interchange manual (not much help), what I did was trim some of the length of the center rod where it actuates the master cylinder, and now I have what seems to be "normal" brake pedal travel, but for some reason when I try to bleed the master cylinder, the rear reservoir (rear brakes?) will not bleed.
My question is: Is there someone out there who knows what the length of this center rod should be? Should I replace the master cylinder (it was really dirty when I picked it up from this shop). Thanks in advance for any help offered... it is really appreciated.
