Do I need a stop for my hyd clutch?

Hey guys,
All you guys out there running hyd clutches. I'm still in the design stage on my infamous altered conversion, and I have what may be a dumb question.
I've got a set of the old Ansen pedals that hang from the firewall and use the mid '60's GM truck double master cylinder.
I've got a new cylinder, and matching slave, and the install is really pretty straight forward. Build a bracket that comes off the bellhousing to locate the slave, springs to pull everything back to rest when there is no pressure, etc.
My question is, do I need some sort of stop on the clutch pedal to keep the stroke from going too far, or does the system take care of itself?
When the slave reaches the end of it's stroke is that the stop, or do I need to fab a stop to keep the clutch pedal from crushing the slave internals?
Am I worrying about something that dosen't happen in the first place?
The only other hyd clutch I've played with was a Triumph TR6, and it was already engineered. Progress is ohh so slow, as I have to sell my '65 Biscayne project before I have money to go farther.
My pension from Deere pays the bill but it doesn't leave me much for my toys. Thanks, M

I used to use that system quite a bit way back when the masters and slaves were plentiful in the boneyards. As I recall the stroke on the cylinder self limits the TO arm from going over center..

All i would do other that what you said is to make some kind of adjustment in the slave cylinder bracket in order to get the clutch travel adjustment correct..I don't think you have any worries as far as over travel..

I used an adjustable rod from the pedal to the master.

Adjusted the pedal to be on the floor (w/o carpet) at the bottom of the master stroke.

pedal stop

My Ansen pedals have a clevis with an adjustable rod to depress the slave. I haden't even considered adjusting the rod to stop the pedal just short of the end of the stroke. It's that left hand thing again, trying to make things more difficult than they really are.....Thanks,m
