    Need a thread cutting tool or a big thread file. Sure it is axle or nut?

    Is this doing it with a wrench/socket or your fingers? They will have some resistance when you get to the "castle" part of the nut.

    90BB3DD5-5A8D-4F37-85DF-5261F62CF64B.jpeg Got the master bled and hooked back up to the brake line, but now will not mount to the booster, looks like that pushrod is sticking out too far. How do I get the pushrod back to where I suspect it popped out of, as it will not go back any further.

    Problems solved......for now, thanks to my neighbor, Mopar owner and enthusiast with excellent eyesight, who was able to file down the threads for me. Also figured out it was the stiff brake line holding the master back from full insertion. Now all that is left (hopefully) is bleed the brakes.
