4-speed in and running!

This past winters project near completion...(transferred 700r4 to Muncie 4 speed). Car runs and shifts, but definitely needs clutch pedal adjustment. Since this is my first hydraulic T/O bearing, where should the clutch start engaging? How far should the pedal go down?
These are the under floor pedals, and I feel I may have the clutch pedal set to low to start, as I push it down, it gets real "flat" on me. Meaning--- when I push the clutch pedal down its starts at about 45* angle to the floor, and will go down to almost flat with the floor making it quite uncomfortable to the leg and foot. Maybe I need to lengthen the adjustable rod in the master to be longer, moving the pedal starting point towards the seat more?
