If the pedal height is out of specification, adjust by the follow-ing procedure.1)Back off the stop lamp switch to a position where it doesnot contact the pedal arm.2)Turn the stop lamp switch until the clearance between thestop lamp switch outer case and pedal arm reaches thestandard value, and secure the stop lamp switch with thelock nut.Clearance between pedal and stop lamp switch B . . . . . . . . . .0.5 to 1.0 mm (0.02 to 0.039 in.)2.free play of brake pedalFree play of brake pedal C . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .3-8 mm (0.118-0.315 in.)3.Start the engine, apply the brake pedal with approximately 50kg (110 Ibs.) of force, and measure the clearance between thebrake pedal and the floor board.Pedal to floor board clearance Dwhen pedal is depressed 50 kg (110 Ibs.) force . . . . . . . . . . .80 mm (3.15 in.) or morewhen pedal is fully depressed without brake fluid.. . . . . . . .44 mm (1.73 in.) or more5 8 - 8
GENERALBRAKE BOOSTER OPERATION TESTTEST WITHOUT A TESTERFor a simple check of brake booster operation, make the followingtests.1.Run the engine for one or two minutes, and then stop it.Depress the brake pedal several times at normal foot pressure.If the pedal goes down deepest the first time, but graduallyrises after the second or third time, the brake booster is func-tioning properly. Go to step 2.2. With the engine stopped, depress the brake pedal severaltimes.Depress the brake pedal and start the engine.If the pedal goes down slightly, the booster is in good condition.Go to step 3.3.With the engine running, depress the brake pedal and thenstop the engine.Hold the pedal depressed for 30 seconds. If the pedal heightdoes not change, the booster is in good condition.If one of the above three tests is not okay, check the vacuum hoses,and the brake booster, and make any necessary corrections. If alltests OK, unit is good.BLEEDING OF BRAKE SYSTEM1.Remove the reservoir cap and fill the brake reservoir withbrake fluid.CAUTlONDo not let brake fluid remain on a painted surface.Wash it off immediately.NOTEWhen bleeding by pressurized fluid, do not press the brakepedal.2.Connect the vinyl tube to the wheel cylinder bleeder plug, andinsert the other end of tube in a half full container of brakefluid.3.Slowly pump the brake pedal several times.4.While depressing the brake pedal fully, loosen the bleeder pluguntil fluid starts to run out. Then close the bleeder plug.GoodWhen engine isstoppedNo goodWhen engine isstarted
