Calculator for PEDAL STROKE CHANGE
• A negative percentage indicates a decrease in stroke.
- A shorter stroke requires a higher pedal effort to generate the same hydraulic pressure.
The numbers already entered are just examples and can be overwritten. If you enter decimals, please use a decimal point. Metric System users: I'm sorry, but you too will have to use the decimal point, as the "comma" will not work.
To predict pedal stroke before you install different master brake cylinders:
This calculator calculates the change in brake fluid displacement after changing the Master Brake Cylinder(s).
Not all pedal travel is related to brake fluid displacement and therefore will not change with different master cylinders. Here are some examples:
Here are some actions that require pedal travel AND brake fluid displacement:
• For this Pedal Travel Calculator (that only calculates the difference in stroke between the "old" and "new" situation), it does not matter whether you are dealing with a tandem M/C or a dual M/C set-up.
• If you are working on a vehicle with one single M/C operating all four brakes (most cars of the 60's and older), than fill out either the "front" fields or the "rear" fields (leaving the other two empty).
