clutch pedal

Hey guys I got my clutch put in and and just got it back and now there is a tone of slack in the pedal , as soon as I start to let the clutch out like less than an inch it engages how can I adjust it ?
-I have a aftermarket cable with a new quadrant and fire wall adjuster

Take the adjuster and turn it towards the firewall more. Do it in small increments and test as you go.

Adjust it at the firewall. Put it on ramps, have 2 helpers. 1 helper in the car for safety, 1 helper at the firewall, you under the car with it running. With the dust shield off, hace helper at the firewall adjust it until the TOB starts to spin. Then 1 click tighter and button it up. Your clutch is now adjusted properly.

Is the TOB supposed to spin when the pedal is out ?

Yes there should be a slight preload on the TOB, it is designed to work this way. If there wasn't it would be going 0-6000 rpm in a matter of a second. Not good and smells like burnt clutch.
