removal is by far easiest done by removal of m.c.. 2 brake lines,3 bolts and its out. then you can see the horse shoe clips on both ends of pivot shaft that are pinched tight into a machined goove,both ends. there are no pinch bolts.
i took a look at my car and it appeared that brake pedal couldn't be removed anyway without at least taking off the clutch pivot mounts and linkage.
more trouble than removing the cyl.

good luck :?

hi jim,
a pinch bolt is just a bolt that when tightened causes some part to clamp arround another to hold it on. many applications.
the horse shoe type retainers are on both ends of the shaft that passes thru the master cyl. and brake pedal. easy to see what i'm talking about with the m.c. removed.

enjoy

unless the bore is perfectly clean and shiney, honing is a must. honing is only to clean up a cyl. and add small cross hatch lines to help new seals break in.
do NOT hone to remove HEAVY rust HOLES. if used as a boring tool the cyl. will leak forever. if you cannot clean up within a short time, cyl. must be repaired or replaced.
repairs are very expensive, as they are bored and relined with a stainless sleeve. should then last forever. most people just buy new, (120-130 bucks) and hope the cylinder will outlast them or their ownership.

enjoy,
doug
