Master Cylinder Rod

I have a Ford Granada master cylinder I`m using on a project. The pedal rod has a little clip on it that snaps into a groove in the master cylinder. Is there anyway to get the rod out?

I would try a slide hammer. Watch out though, you will be stressing the snap ring that holds the piston in the M/C. You would probably save yourself alot of hassle by buying another MC that doesnt have the pushrod installed.

Some are almost impossible, some pop out easily. I never reinstall them, they really are not needed in service, but were used for faster assembly time at the factory.

Manual and power cylinders are the same except for the line output port diameter.

79 Mustang ONLY manual cylinder (inches not metric) will bolt on and provide slightly easier pedal feel on manual systems.

I always throw that little clip away.....It is not really needed and then you can easily get the rod out when you want to.

I used a slap hammer and got it out. It is a new M/C and thought maybe someone out there had ran into this and might have a trick to remove it. Thought I`d ask before using the hammer on it. Thanks Spanky
