ned help with hydralic clutch conversion

Hi I am restoring a 36 international pickup. I put a 350 chevy engine and have put a t5 5speed tranny out of an s10 behind it. I am attempting to install a hydraulic clutch slave and master cylinder. Problem -- I can't seem to get enough travel on the fork to fully engage the clutch. The slave cylinder has a 13/16 bore and the master cylnder has a 7/8 bore. Right now I get about 1 and 1/2 inches of travel. looks like I need 2 inches to fully engage the clutch. ANy suggestions. Do I need a bigger bore master cylinder?

I would contact Mcleod clutches. I had some questions for a trans I thought I was going to use and they seemed very knowledgeable about what sizes were needed and how much travel both slave and master needed

clutch problem solved maybe

I found anoter post on the BB with some one having similiar problems only with manual linkage. So I checked it out and yes I think I have the same problem. Looks like the splines do not go far enough back on the input shaft and the clutch disc then binds up against the tranny and flywheel when the tranny is bolted up tight. Solution is to shave off 3/16 from the center of the clutch disc. Trying that now.
