Well, I had a chance to drive her today. Brakes are still very grabby. It would seem that moving master away from booster has simply lowered the pedal action. I did notice that the hard line from master to distribution block has a kink in it. I wonder if this would cause issues, and idea? Thanks

When the m/c pilot is too long, the symptoms of a fault would be the brakes staying on [ not releasing ]. You didn't have that problem. Also, since I believe you said there is only one hole in the brake pedal, that cannot be the problem either...

Which brings us back to items that can cause grabby brakes:
- M/c bore too small [ was it changed? ]
- oil/grease on brake linings
- poor brake adjustment
- internal booster fault

Thanks, It is original Booster and MC. Inspection shows linings are clean. That leaves adjustment. I may back off a few turns on each and see, but I believe I have auto adjusters which will bring them right back again....

If you have auto adjusters & they are working, then unlikely to be the problem.

If you have a high brake pedal, it is a good sign that the adjusters are working & probably no need to go any further playing around with adjustment.

If the brakes are on/off, no in between, & it makes no difference if the brakes are hot or cold, then it is more than likely the booster.
