1978 cj5

New to the Forum, Just purchased an unmolested 1978 CJ5 (yes, totally stock) from the original owner. My problem is with the brake pedal. The clutch pedal is 5" from the firewall while the brake pedal is 10" from the firewall. The pedal is so high that my knee hits the steering wheel before I can get my foot on it.
Any ideas? Any and all help will be appreciated.

Sounds like the clutch may need adjusted. How much free play is there? Should be about an inch. Is there a return spring on the clutch pedal?
