Thanks, once again! I sure am glad you are working on a BJ8 Phase 1, too.
It seems to me that the purpose of the shims would be to adjust the "height" 
of the pedal, so an adjustable pushrod & shims seems redundant. However, the 
truth is that I actually have 3 shims, so it would appear that I lost one. I 
will make a new one & put them all on the assumption that the factory wouldn't 
have put them in unless they thought they were necessary.

How fortunate you and I are currently assembling similar cars. That leaves 
these little details still fresh in my mind. I just assembled this stuff 
about 3 weeks ago.

The brake master cylinder is the larger of the two, being a 7/8" bore for 
use with the servo system. It has the adjustable pushrod with the much 
larger and thicker clevis. Both brake and clutch master cylinders will use 
the split shims between the mounting flange and the bulkhead mount 
positions. Be mindful of any wear in the thinner clutch master pushrod 
clevis holes. They may need to be welded up and redrilled for the 5/16" 
clevis pins. Of course the pins can also wear badly.
