1964.5 master cylinder push rod removal

I have removed plenty of 65 push rods from the brake pedal but this is the first 64.5 I can think of working on. I have not started poking at it yet but I don’t see any pin or C clip to pull. It looks like it may have a pressed on cap over the end (second photo). Has anyone has had any experience with removing it?

Yes, the '64.5 half clip is indeed different than '65-'66. I would hop over onto the Concours Mustang forum website to ask over there as well... to cover both bases... I'm sure that someone over there has removed one to restore at some time.

Well I think I have it figured out. It has a C lip on it but the opening for the clip is on the backside where I could not see it.

Kascus, I know this is an old thread but I'm updating my '64.5 to disc brakes and having a tough time getting the e-clip of the pin. What did you use to get the clip off? Normally I use a screwdriver on those, but I've had a difficult time getting one in with the side of the brake pedal bracket.

I use small, pocket, flat bladed screwdrivers to get them out a lot. The kind of thing that you'd use to take out interior covers on a modern car or on electronics.

I've bent a couple of the tips of those so far. Thanks for the input.
