MX5 brake master cylinder pushrod

Hi all, I have another question around the MX5 master cylinder. The various braking options all mention removing the brake servo, and using a rounded off bolt to operate the master cylinder. But if I compare this with the newly purchased clutch cylinder, I can see the clutch cylinder has a retained pushrod to operate the master cylinder.

This makes me wonder whether I'm missing something for the brake MC, with it just being a rounded bolt pushing on a piston. There's no retention, no circlip, rubber boot or anything that would keep the bolt in place on the piston. There's the brake pedal movement limiter, but is it permitted to have a pushrod that is not fixed to the MC?

Am I reading too much into it, is it safe to just have a pushrod 'in place' on the MC, and retained by nothing more than the pedal range?

Sorry - don't know what your earlier questions were and not really answering this one

I kept everything as it came out of the MX5 including the servo. It all works a treat!
