That seems odd. The pedal end of the push rod ought to be squared off. The switch then is usually spring loaded and rubs against the square end. Most times I find the switch to be too touchy, and lights the rear at the slightest tap of the foot, even before the brake shoes begin to rub.

You still have a gap?

Is the nylon shim beside the switch installed on the shaft for the pedal? If it is missing sometimes this allows the pushrod to deflect enough that it may not push the switch. Ask me how I know! Hello Officer...what my brake lights aren't working???? Stu
