SOURCE: new clutch not working properly really could use some help

My best guess on this, assuming that the clutch master is working and it has no air remaining in the system is that you either have the wrong throwout bearing in there or that it is installed incorrectly. Also, rare but can happen is that if the pressure plate assembly is a rebuilt one, the face has been cut too far and clearances are off.
Obviously, check everything external before taking it apart again, but that's where I think you will need to go.

No, this is a hydraulic clutch and the only adjustment may b on the pedal linkage for free travel to the master cylinder. It sounds as though you may have a bad clutch master cylinder or defective slave cylinder.

How to adjust the clutch on 1977 mgb. my clucth is almost on the floor to change gears

There should be just a couple thousands of an inch of free play at the slave cylinder to the fork. (at the bell housing) If you have more than that, then adjust the length of the slave cylinder pin. Your symptoms can also be caused by not enough brake fluid in the clutch master or air in the line. If it gets way better by pumping the pedal you might just need to bleed the air out. If it is leaking fluid at the slave, it needs a new rubber washer inside - a rebuild kit usually includes the dust boot for it also. If it is leaking fluid at the master, rebuild that.

The clutch will not engage properly on my 1988 toyota pickup. Already replace clutch master cyclinder and clutch slave?

There are a couple of possibilities; worn clutch plate, failed pressure plate, possible hanging up of the throw-out bearing. Also, some hydraulic clutches have a throw adjustment on the slave cylinder that may need adjustment after replacing the slave cylinder.
If you plan on more DIY maintenance, I would highly recommend buying a Haynes service manual, you'll find the $25 well-spent:

How do i adjust my cluth on a 2003 tacoma

The slave cylinder in these trucks makes the clutch non adjustable. If you have a soft clutch pedal which goes to the floor and can not shift as easy as it used to the slave cylinder is low on fluid or weak. Check the reservoir of the slave cylinder to see if its full. If low fill it with the recommended Power Steering fluid which is DOT3 approved I do beleive and pump the clutch pedal about 25 times with the engine off. The clutch should operate correctly. If it tends to get worse the slave cylinder needs to be replaced

New rear brake shoes on toyota starlet one side sticking on red hot?

Sounds like it was not installed correctly.
The slave cylinder may need replaced.
The linkage and springs that are part of the brake system may need checked for proper hookup.
The shoes my have been adjusted too tight on installation.

I would hedge my bets on a bad slave cylinder if it wasnt replaced.

My clutch disengages too low. Can I adjust it to disengage higher up (from the floor)?

no, its wearing out or your slave cylinder is defective. Get it looked at ASAP. If its a slave cylinder it can be good one push and nothing the next.
