The brake pedal does sit higher than the clutch pedal on these pedal boxes.

Have you filled the clutch and brake MC's with fluid yet? They just naturally flop about at their own height until you do

The pedal height did change as there were some cases of the pedal bottoming out when the disc brakes were introduced.

I've moved this to PQ&T where it'll likely get a better response.

Hi purchased a master cylinder reseal kit for yellow tag MC but the seals are different sizes and don't fitt the top plunger. All the stockiest tell me that's the right one for 1985 yellow tag and it should be a stepped bore but mine is parallel. Dose any one no the kit I need and part no if possible please.
