In addition to making sure the banjo is installed in the correct orientation, you may have to extend the pushrod by a few turns. I have never installed a "Rodney" master cylinder that I didn't have to adjust the pushrod "longer", in order to get correct travel at the slave.
I wouldn't be surprised if the banjo purposely
comes adjusted a bit short... to eliminate any chance of the master piston bottoming out on first use after installation.
For anyone installing an adjustable clutch master for the first time... you usually
want as much clutch "stroke"/slave travel as possible*
, but the clutch pedal should contact the floor before
the master reaches the end of its travel.
I'll echo the sentiment that Rodney Dickman's Fiero parts are all top notch.*
The Getrag 5-spd doesn't seem to require as much "stroke" and can actually experience disengagement issues with too much
slave travel... so only adjust the banjo length as much as is required for ideal clutch disengagement.
