I called ECI today

I thought he might want to buy something to fix it. No, he did not. He said, When the pedal is stiff, it has a pre-load of fluid. I would drive around this morning first. I did it a again, when the fluid expand because the fluid gets hot. He told me to adjust the pedal, in my did not have a adjust, he says you need to give it a 1/2" or close, I had to pull the M/C to get to the shaft to cut the shaft, it was strange. I cut the shaft and I did not have any brakes to the floor. I changed the springs, that did not helped. So I just to put the tip of the shaft into the M/C. I have alot more pedal stopping half pedal. I tried the drive thinking it is going to get locking, I drived for about 20 minutes. It is fixed! It just need some place for the fluid.

Yea ha!
