Default Clutch release free play

I am working on assembly of a 66 Nova with Nova block 327, stock GM bell housing and clutch rod linkage and Muncie 4 speed. It was originally a straight six automatic. My problem is with a raised finger Valeo pressure plate and clutch disc, a long throw out bearing leaves no free play between the trans and the pressure plate, and a short TOB angles the clutch fork too much so the pedal will not depress. I found at JEGS and Summit, what appears to be a longer fork pivot ball. Was there different lengths of these from GM? Both styles of pressure plates, flat and raised fingers as well as long and short TOB are shown as the correct application for my car. Something has to be different? All linkage assembly and clutch fork came from Classic Industries. Any one have any suggestions? Thanks
