Yes it is a late model Sigma engined car.  I had noticed the clutch hydraulic hose going in through a hole in the bell housing.

Certainly not a design for ease of maintenace on the slave cylinder. 

 I will take the cover off and adjust carefully , as you have suggested . 

Thank you J and 7 wonders

To get the Clutch pedal in a position i am happy with , required the courser adjustment, of moving the clevis pin to the inner hole position. (towards the driver) 

This has worked a treat , then checked and re-set the pedal stop as suggested.

Went for a little test drive around the block , today . What a difference !

Well done. Brake and throttle OK?

Funny you should ask J Rofl 

Whilst working in the pedal box , thought i would check full throttle opening , which it was getting , but the pedal stop adjustment  was nowhere near , it was using the throttle body, butterfly stop instead . 

So re-set that also. 

Plus lubricated all the pivots and linkages in the pedal box (with my trusty oil can) whilst top was off. 

Naturally the drive is greatly improved. 

So thank you all , again and wishing you a Greaaaaaaat Christmas Xmas
