I installed a new (Rodney's) Master Cylinder. I need to adjust the banjo to bring the clutch up an inch or so (after the installation, the pedal dropped about a 1/2 below the brake pedal). Can I adjust the banjo while it is attached to the clutch pedal or do I have to disconnect it from the clutch pedal first? Also, is it best to do the adjusting by turning the banjo or does the adjusting have to be done by turning the nut on the banjo? Thanks.

It would probably be best to email Rodney. That way you'd get the correct answer instead of all the various ways we would do it. Rodney is very quick to answer and gives good product support.

You just have to loosen the synch nut and turn the threaded rod out. I have the adjustable banjo on a stock Fiero MC and it is a godsend

You can loosen the nut and turn the push rod. It might be a bit hard to turn the rod with your fingers. So:

Loosen the lock nut. Take the retaining clip off and take the banjo off the pedal and turn the banjo. Once you have it where you want it reinstall the clip and then tighten the lock nut.

I received a message from Rodney regarding adjusting the banjo. He said to loosen the lock nut. Then take the retaining clip off. Then take the banjo off the pedal and turn the banjo. Once you have it where you want it, reinstall the clip and tighten the lock nut.
