1966 Mustang- remove pushrod from master cylinder?

(1/1)

bandit1:
How do you remove the pushrod from the master cylinder? I understand that I need to use it when changing from single mc (from 66) to dual mc (from 67).

66GTKFB:
It is difficult to do without the 'proper' tool. The 'proper' tool is difficult to locate. Without the 'proper' tool, something gets destroyed.
A 65 brake push rod is a lot easier (hint).

Soaring:
They make a special tool to remove the clip. You can try to use needle nose pliers  to collapse it enough to get a small screwdriver in between the master cylinder and the clip and then snap it out. If you contact Snap-on, and explain the exact problem, they can probably send you the correct tool to do it.  But, like Jim said.  The 65 rod just pushes right in without a retaining ring.
