Got my CPP Hydratech/Wilwood, should I install it as received?

I got my Hydratech and Wilwood set up from CPP, delivered 3 weeks after it was ordered. Whatever, my car is down for the winter... Anyway, the master was bolted to the booster. I have read a lot about getting the mechanical interface just right between them, the rod length, etc. Since this one is bolted together, do I trust them to have done it right, such that it's plug/play as an assembly. It's going into a 68 with manual brakes currently.

Sure, I can call them. But I want some opinions on how tricky this interface set up really is, and how picky CPP is on quality. They sure packaged it nicely for shipping...

I'm not a car guy but did all the mech/elec work... and everything started with a dumb question

Been thru this when I bought a booster and tried to us my exisitng Master Cyl. There must be a half dozen different lengths for that silly little piston that goes between the booster and the master cyl. I hope they got it right when they assembeled the parts.

It is a PIA to change that thing out. Not hard brain frying work but it is a PIA...tedious. It was along time ago and memory fades but the scars are still there. I think the extra unused pistons are still around here someplace. If you have to call them because you find it is wrong just order one of each length that is available. It could save a lot of time.
