Question about 1992 Chevrolet K1500
With a clutch cable linkage there is always adjustment in the cable length to compensate for cable stretch.
With hydraulic clutch linkage, there is less need for adjustment because there is nothing that is supposed to change.
However, the rod connecting the pedal to the clutch master is still almost always adjustable. What you try to do is optimize the pedal free play to about a half inch. You don't want to get rid of all the free play, or else the clutch master may retain pressure and cause slippage. But you don't want too much free play, or else the clutch may still grab enough to cause grinding. There is usually a locknut and threaded shaft that turns to change length.
But if the hydraulic fluid is dirty or leaking from either slave or master, rebuild them both, look for pits, put in new seals, and bleed the old fluid and air out of the line, before adjusting.

NO, CHECK YOUR CLUCTH MASTER CYLINDER LEVEL.OR LEAKS ADD IN NEEDED. THEN CRALL UNDER THE TRUCK AND CHECK THE SLAVE CYLNDER THATS THE ONE THAT OPENS YOUR CLUTCH MOUNTED ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANNY FOR LEAKS ALSO. IF THESE TOW ARE DEFECTED THEY WILL MAKE YOU THINK YOUR CLUTCH IS WORN AND THE PEDAL WILL GO PRETTY LOW AND GEARS ARE GONNA BE HARD OR IMPOSSIBLE TO ENGAUGE. IF BOTH ARE OKAY AND YOUR SLAVE CYLINDER PUSHES THE LEVER ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANNY THAT OPENDS YOUR CLUTCH THEN YOU NEED A CLUTCH PRETTY SIMPLE. BUT 60% THERES A LEAK THAT REPAIRABLE WITH A REPLACEMENT AND A BLEED. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU AND SEND ME A FEEDBACK PLEASE THANSKS

This is caused by either a worn transmission input shaft collar, the collar on the front of the transmission and of course the release bearing rides on that. Any groove that gets worn in it can cause the clutch pedal to hang up.
