Question about 1983 Toyota Pickup
If it worked good before the clutch kit was installed , but not after then the clutch installation is incorrect
probably find the the clutch plate has been installed incorrectly
with a correctly fitted clutch kit , there is no necessity to change pedal height or anything else

check the helper spring on the clutch pedal. You'll have to get down in the driver's footwell and using a flashlight look at the mechanism while you push the pedal down (and pull up). If the spring isn't missing or broken and everything looks okay, then change the clutch master cylinder. The piston in the cylinder is probably binding due to corrosion in the bore. I have an 1986 and had the same problem. Changing the clutch master cylinder fixed it.

This vehicle has a hydraulic clutch system check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder it is located on the firewall near the brake master cylinder fill it if its low than check hydraulic system for leaks, possibly slave cylinder, you will have to rebleed the system if part replacement is neccassary

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.

I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. You may be low on fluid in the master cylinder for the clutch. If it is low, it takes regular DOT3 brake fluid. After you fill it, you might have to drive it a day or two for it to recover.
