May have some good news for you.

Check out the pivot point for the pedal at the "clevis pin".  I was
thinking the same thoughts re: master cyl, but turned out to only
require some "repair" to this hole, which was elongated.

Need only figure out some kind of spacer to put in the elongated hole,
then reassemble.  HUGE DIFFERENCE!!

Good Luck!
