Abstract—To execute the functioning and biasing of force acting on two master cylinder using single brake pedal a mechanical system, i.e., balance bar is used which is designed to divide the force applied by the driver on the brake pedal to the master cylinders. Moreover in master cylinder pushrod’s movement is critical for proper functioning of master cylinder. So to achieve linear motion correct position and orientation of brake pedal and pushrod mounting is required. After motion analysis and practical examination it is shown how to decide the mounting’s of pushrod
