Hello, I recently rebuilt the correct master cylinder for my 70 Chevelle and when I took the stop bolt out on disassembly it was uneventful but the pistons were gummed up and were somewhat stuck in the bore. So now that I've honed the bore and replaced everything, does the piston to be pushed in a certain amount before installing the stop bolt or do I reinstall with the piston at rest? I'm not sure if it keeps the piston from going too far forward or returning back too far. Any ideas? Thanks

Thanks Levon. While searching before posting I ran across that illustration. It looks like I can just install the bolt with the piston in it's resting position. I guess maybe I just don't understand it's purpose? Thanks for responding.

My understanding is that it positions the piston and prevents it from being pushed back too far from it's working location.
