There is an adjustment for free play in the pedal. This is generall as tight as you can get the linkage without it dis-engaging the clutch without the pedal being pressed.
I adjust mine at the arm that sits on the throwout bearing. It is really the most accurate way to get the most dis-engagement when the pedal is pressed. I tighten the linkage until there is just a little bit of free play without the throwout bearing riding the pressure plate. This way when you press the pedal it will move the throut bearing as much as possible without the clutch risking not being fully dis-engaged when the pedal is releaed.
Also, with a custom job from A/T to M/T the linkage alignment can be critical depending on the setup. If the linkage is mounted strictly on the motor and tranny the alignment is less of an issue as opposed to the linkage being mounted on the chassis.
If you had to weld linkage in place somewhere on the chassis or custom fabricate something, I would try to get measurements form a stock setup oir maybe call the tech line at Center Force.
Let me kow how it goes.
There are also some good links on this site for diagnosing the issue. But, I don't think there is anything that will have specs or measurements as that would be found in a factory service manual. The Mitchel ! Online maual offered on this site is a great deal because you get service manuals for essentially any car that you own or ever will own.
I will check back to see how it is going.
