After new master and slave still doesn't shift

I put in a new master, slave, and new bushing and the clutch still doesn't disengage enough to get it into and out of gear without a lot of grinding. Bled the heck out of the line too.

Is the only adjustment to remove the small pitman like arm on the clutch pedal and move it forward a couple teeth to get more travel out of the master cylinder?

I also removed teh inspection/splash guard below clutch and no teeth or parts laying down there.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Note, this is on a 96 with a 4wd ZF5

Sounds like you may have a cracked fire wall letting the master flax away from the peddle. Took me forever to find it on a 94 I had, have someone work the peddle as you look. I made a reinforcing plate for mine and then found a kit to fix it someplace so there is a kit out there.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.
