I had the same problem on my first car. Fiest I put a shorter pivot pin in my bellhousing and the rod was still too long so I had to lengthen the slave cylinder mount by welding a small length of steel to it. The next year I bought a hydraulic throwout bearing and it was much better.

I had same problem. I just fabricated a simple bracket that the pushing slave mounted to and then bolted that newly made bracket to the pre-threaded holes in my bellhousing. It takes alittle while to make but then your done and can use it forever.

I have ran hydraulic slave cylinders before,
always had problems with them leaking at about mid season. It cost a little more but a hydraulic throw out is the only way to fly.
well worth the money in the long run
