Default Hyd clutch questions

Kind of broad ranging question, doing the T56 swap and Hyd clutch on my BB 68. I've seen some posts on here and other forums that talk about when the clutch release/engages, pedal travel and over travel and the need for a travel stop on the clutch pedal. What's the truth and solutions? Is a pedal stop needed? is the release/engage point an issue? what don't I know that I should? Am I overthinking this?
Thanks

You do need to limit the travel as the clutch master has a specified range of motion. Exceed that and you can/will damage it, possibly the clutch or the release bearing. In some cases the floor acts as the stop, just make sure to measure the stroke and make sure it's in spec with what the clutch master manufacturer wants. Otherwise you need to fab up a mechanical stop.

Here's some universal ones.

Thanks, Looks like something as simple as a rivnut in the firewall and a carriage bolt with jam nut.

Mark your clutch rod where it goes through the firewall with the pedal up in it's resting place. Then make a mark at the max distance listed with your clutch master, say 1.2" for example. Slowly push the clutch pedal down and see if the pedal will go past the second mark before bottoming out. If it does you need a pedal stop to limit that distance to the clutch master specs.

Dang it, YOU told me that elsewhere and Unfortunately, I failed to ask and it's already shipped. I'll have to make do with what I get.

you may be fine, and if not you can just get a longer bolt to use, shouldn't be a big deal. I needed the longer one for mine, but I had measured before I ordered it.
