Does he have the correct size of master and slave cylinders fitted?

Sounds about right what Ian says,   That it is the wrong slave cylinder. 

Only other option is the release bearing mechanism has snapped off at the end, i.e the bit that the pushrod presses into when you put your foot on the clutch pedal.   remove his slave cylinder and look inside the opening with a torch, it should be fairly easy to spot. 

If its a project car, could even be someone has fitted the gearbox back in with the release mechanism, i.e a rush job to make a car look more complete, stranger things have happened :)

PO replaced clutch fork on my car. After only 5 K miles , my push rod burrowed a ~3-4mm deep hole in the adjusting screw and became one. Is this an indication of not enough slack/play?

What should be a proper adjustment set up?  BTW: I'm in the process of replacing  0.70" Girling MC with 5/8" Wilwood MC.

Any advice?
