It still doesn't slam up and there is about a fingers width distance between the rubber stop and the leaver. The return is much better than before. could the spring be weak?
Certainly, the spring could be weak. Or something's wacky with the rest of the brake pedal linkage parts. Or someone installed a huge
cast-iron brake pedal. Or the servo is putting some sort of hold on the pedal. The last can easily be checked for by disconnecting the
clevis pin and seeing if the pedal acts any differently.

Good call on removing the clevis pin. I'll give it try. Thanks
