    Brake & Clutch Master Cylinders

    Both cyliders have push rods that look alike, but one is longer. After rebuilding the cylinders, I may have mixed them and installed them incorrectly. Which cylinder uses the longer rod.
    This on a 1964 TR-4.

    Mine (in place in the car) look the same length so if one is longer it is concealed within the M/C.

    I guess I've never had both out at the same time to compare the lengths.

    I would think you could assemble the M/Cs one way and see if they end up with the same amount revealed. If not, undo the circlips and swap them.

    The other possibility is that someone has substituted a non-standard length push rod. Most likely train of thought there would be a longer one on the clutch in the mistaken notion that this would improve disengagement.
