    I switched from hydro boost to a power brake booster. I misplaced the pin that held the rod to the brake pedal arm.

    Was this a certain type of pin or can I use a cotter pin?

    By the way, if anyone else does this, I had to drill the adjusting rod hole out to a 9/16".

    I was just looking that up while you posted. It's generally called a hairpin clip.
