Default Adjust brake pedal 70 bendix booster

I just installed a original 1970 Bendix brake booster with a straight pushrod and a original 1970 power brake pedal on my 1970 mustang convertible. But the brake pedal is really high and a would like to lower it, but i have no idea how. Is it possible to change someting inside the booster, or the solution I found is to make a half an inch plate that fits between the firewall and the booster so the pushrod comes back a bit.
Any ideas

I think i know the problem already. I need a bracket betweeen the booster and the firewall. I can make this myself, but does anyone know how thick the bracket is

Thanx

Yes in deed, the Booster obtained from the local parts store will come in without the rear "Spacer/Mounting bracket"

This bracket extends the booster forward aprox 3/4" , which will reduce the pedal heigth a good bit.

Folks make the Mistake of mounting the 5 studs to firewall, not having the bracket installed, and have the pedal near their knees???--?>/

Thanx for the answers. I will fabricate a spacer myself. By the way Dan I have your chocostang disc brake kit on my car and it really works great! thanx for that.
Another thing I just discovered was that I cant open my master cylinder because the vacuum port on my bendix booster is blocking the handle thats keeps the cover on my master cylinder in place (it's a really cheap fenco master cylinder from Autozone) can anyone advise me which master cylinder I need that fits a bendix booster?

Thanx

Just call, I believe it would be easier.

Something seem incorrect from the Auto Zone part.
