Clutch fork measurement.

Can anyone tell me how much space should be between the clutch fork and the flat surface that the slave cylinder mounts to? I measured 2 5/8 inches with the slave removed and the fork held twords the rear. I'm trying to figure out if the fingers on my pressure plate are out too far. I'm having trouble with the clutch engaging the last possible inch of pedal travel and I can see that the disc is still good.

Measure the slave rod travel with the pedal fully depressed. Minimum spec is 11mm. If you don't get enough travel, check all the bushings for the pedal under the dash: the pedal linkage to master cylinder rod, and the brake/clutch pedal box mainshaft bushings. Cheers!

It seems like i have plenty of travel at the fork. Im thinking the pressure plate fingers are pointing towards the transmission too much and allowing the throwout bearing to engauge before it should thus engauging and disengauging with the pedal almost all the way out. I was able to get my phone in the bell housing and snap a pic of the fingers and one of the disc.
