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 does not contact the pedal arm. 2) Turn the stop lamp switch until the clearance between the stop lamp switch outer case and pedal arm reaches the standard value, and secure the stop lamp switch with the lock nut.

GENERAL BRAKE BOOSTER OPERATION TEST TEST WITHOUT A TESTER For a simple check of brake booster operation, make the following tests. 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 gradually rises 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 several times. 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 then stop the engine. Hold the pedal depressed for 30 seconds. If the pedal height does 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 all tests OK, unit is good. BLEEDING OF BRAKE SYSTEM 1. Remove the reservoir cap and fill the brake reservoir with brake fluid. CAUTlON Do not let brake fluid remain on a painted surface. Wash it off immediately. NOTE When bleeding by pressurized fluid, do not press the brake pedal. 2. Connect the vinyl tube to the wheel cylinder bleeder plug, and insert the other end of tube in a half full container of brake fluid. 3. Slowly pump the brake pedal several times. 4. While depressing the brake pedal fully, loosen the bleeder plug until fluid starts to run out. Then close the bleeder plug. Good When engine is stopped No good When engine is started
