Just wondering how to adjust my break pedal. I have to move my foot way back to get to the break pedal.

Do you have a Bentley manual?

The push rod is not supposed to be adjusted but there's supposed to be bolted down stop at the back base of the pedal.

Yes, You need to adjust the plate on the floor. it should have a slot in it so You can adjust the brake pedal. undo the bolt/nut and push the brake pedal in, and then tighten the nut/bolt while holding the brake pedal in position...  A very unusual type of adjustment..  Once set and tightened it shouldn't need to be adjusted..
