      Ok, so last night I replaced the cam follower. I did not drive it after the replacement and then today I noticed that the brake pedal is rather tight. I thought nothing of it until I came to a stop sign at the bottom of a hill and then I basically had to stand on it to bring her to a complete stop, which was a little frightening. I have absolutely no idea what would cause this. The pads look fine. Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

      Did you reconnect the vacuum line that goes in front of the pump?
