    Got everyone's attention! Don't know you Rene, but hats off as I got some good laughs out of all the comments. Question for you and your friends (forum). While back, someone posted that w/ Hydro Boost conversion you had to have the pedal assmebly off of hydro boost donor vehicle cuz the rod mounts on the pedal differently. My k5 pedal mounted just fine. I had to put a metal washer/spacer due to hole size difference in brake booster rod, but all is well. Question is, I haven't driven it yet, should I expect some wierd brake problems due to this? Thanks all.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Re:I am not short ;^)

    I have never had a truck with hydroboost...I did get a giggle out of your post title though!

    one test you can do prior to bleeding is too ensure you are able to bottom the master with the pedal.
    i am guessing that the hydro boost would need less mechanical advantage from the pedal linkage.
    i have a hydroboost i have been threatening to install for about 5years now so i for one would appreciate if you posted your trials and tribulations.

    Trials and tribs, the hydro is in and works. Only thing I had to do mod wise was make a washer spacer to equal the hole size in hydro rod to the size of the stud from pedal assembly. Bottoms out fine, so we will see.

    LOL... man I saw a guy in penn station (newark, nj) that was 7'6"! man this guy dwarfed me which doesn't happen very often. he was playing for some amature basketball team so he must've had a hard time walking and chewing gum. otherwise he'd have been playing the real pro stuff
