Well...I am a friggin idiot sometimes.

My problem was a mismatched pushrod. I swear I looked at it and compared it to the 1 ton truck m/c that the booster came with. I matched up the depth of the face of the piston, not looking at the CENTER OF IT!

Picked up another m/c today and slapped it on there.

Let me just say...this is the most AMAZING brakes I have ever experienced on a C3 in my life. WOW!

Just ran the car about 10 miles. The steering (Grand Am rack conversion), brakes, new clutch, etc. etc. worked fantastic.

Doh! A sharp guy like yourself missed that !? (and admitted it too!)

I can't seem to find that forest with all of these darn trees in the way!

I'm glad to hear that you've got it all straightened out, and are now experiencing some of the best darn brakes in town. The C3 conversions are indeed amazing, as those factory discs REALLY shine when hit with higher line pressures - as you said, actually downright amazing!
