I recall having to space out the actual pedal bump stop with an extra nut and a longer bolt I think? Try that.

The bite point and rest point are adjustable on the sheddist.

This is taken from Nigels PDF instructions

Adjust pedal height and bite point
● Fit the pedal stop to give the desired pedal
height. This maty be adjusted by
fitting/removing washers to suit.
● Once the pedal stop is fitted, the bite point
can be fine tuned.
● Undo the clevis lock nut and unscrew the
clevis by twisting the master cylinder push
rod until there is no free play between the
clevis, pedal and push rod and the slave
cylinder push rod cannot be pushed in- to
check this use a spanner or large
screwdriver levering between the clutch
operating lever and bell housing.
● Then and most important, screw the
master cylinder push rod push rod back
into the clevis a little unitl the point is
reached where the slave cylinder push rod
is free to be pushed in.
● IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE SLAVE
CYLINDER PUSH ROD CAN BE
PUSHED IN WHEN THE PEDAL IS AT
REST.
● Once operation is satisfactory, refit
underdash cover and drivers storage

Hope this helps
