If the rod between the pedal and the ms is too long it actuates the ms piston and creates brake drag. I added an 80 ms to my 40 and had this problem. A proportioning valve will not fix this; it changes the amount of braking force from front to rear. There is a lot of confusion about this and a lot written on Mud (check the signal to noise ratio).

I put my 40 on jack stands to make sure everything actually turned properly with no drag.

Actually, it's the rod between the MC and the booster that is not adjustable and has to be a specific length, the rod from the booster to the peddle is adjustable.
