I also discovered there is quite a multiplier ratio to move the brake pedal up. The distance between the pivot point for the brake pedal to the pedal pad is much greater than the distance between the pivot point and the MC link. That numerical ratio is quite bit. If it was, say, 12:1, then taking out 1/8 inch of excessive clearance would raise the pedal by 1- 1/2 inches. I made these numbers up, but you get the idea.

I had the same problem when rebuilding the drum brakes on my H.
The problem was the amount of free play between the power brake push rod and the master cylinder.
Several tries at slightly increasing the free play solved the problem.

I have replaced the mastercylinder, and serviced the wheelcylinders on my 300C. And I have adjusted the brakes according to the sevice manual.
It seems like there are still pressure present in the system after the brakes are released. The brakes are dragging.
I forgot to check the free play between the push rod, and mastercylinder. I hope the pedal free play adjustment will do the trick. Otherwise I’m out of good ideas.
I will try this on friday night, and I’m hoping to use the car on saturday at the end of season cruisin’.
