85' Nissan 720 4x4 clutch issue

I have to push the clutch all the way to the floor to prevent grinding. Sometimes that isn't even enough. The clutch kit was replaced a few years ago so I assume it is something else. The master/slave cylinders don't look like they are leaking and the res. is full. Any ideas?

You might try adjusting the rod at the pedal under the dash. There is a lock nut you loosen and then turn the rod to make your adjustment.
Good luck!

If thats not it, it may be your clutch master cylinder. If the seal inside goes bad, it wont push all of the fluid needed.
