I replaced the break power booster and the break light switch and now the break lights won't go off. Everythig is connected properly (I even had 2 mechanics look at it to verify that everything is in properly) but the piston coming out of the power booster is approximately 1/18" too long and is putting pressure on the switch to activate it. Did I get a faulty power booster or is there something that I am missing?

I top overhaul the engine, engine run smoother and faster, still the problems with low fuel. Now, at any condition, engine loses power and fumes comes out of bottom of cab.
