    Guys, it looks like i lied about the line size:shy: . I just measured it at 3/16", and checked the old line for the drum brakes at the same size.:(

    swallowed my pride and called the brake company. The tech had me pull the pin out of the peddle and let the pump rod relax. it dropped 1" from the position that lines up with the hole. He said to drill a hole through the peddle arm in that location. He said it will increase the leverage and should fix the sponge. Now i just need to wait till my friend gets home from work so i can borrow his angle drill ( everyone needs a friend with EVERY tool on earth!!!LOL) and we will see if it works. I will keep you all posted.

    Winna, Winna, Chicken Dinna !!!! did the relocate the rod fix and MUCH better! Only about an inch of movement before i get into some serious braking, compared to 2-2 1/2" before i moved it. Something to put in the back of your mind if you have a custom brake system. ;)
