So you kept the master cylinder? I was told to use one from a crown vic 93 since its all disc & no ABS. How long you had the swap now? I want to do the same deal. Sorry for sending your post in another direction!LOL

I know this will sound silly, but try rotating the brake pushrod 180 degrees on the pedal.
That flat on the back end that the switch sits on needs to be pointing down, not up.
