It is possible that the adjustment was just off or when I made a slight alteration to the outside casing that it damaged the diaphragm seat inside. Without a specific tool you end up measuring to the end of inside of the master cylinder and then subtract the measurement back to the flange. Then measure from the flange of the power booster to the adjustable rod inside. Substracting the the first measurement from this power booster measurement should equal zero. The FSM describes specific tools to do theses measurements which of course I don’t have. After I pulled the Vitara Grand booster back off I compared it to the Swift power booster and it was off by 3/16″. I had no more time to waste and I threw back on the Swift power booster and bled the brakes again. Now either I didn’t get all the air out, or the master cylinder is failing. With the Grand Vitara booster there was an extremely long brake with nothing to the end, but at the end the brakes would completely lock up.
Do you have any pictures?
I have been thinking about this for a while.
A bigger booster would give more braking power with less effort
