A low biting point is usually caused by either air in the hydraulics or
mechanical wear in the linkages *up by the pedal*. Note that mechanical wear
at the slave end, and that includes the push-rod, clevis, release arm, release
bearing, cover-plate and friction plate are all compensated for in the design
of the hydraulic system.
A worn clutch usually shows itself as a *high* biting point, then as slippage
in 4th gear, progressing to the lower gears as it worsens.
I've just done a clutch change on a friends car, and the slave cylinder
decided to pack-up during the rebuild so replaced that as well. AFAIK I got
the correct part, but it is now significantly lighter than before or my own
roadster. I also noticed that whereas the slave push-rod travel is usually
quoted as about 1/2" to 5/8", which is what I have measured on my own cars,
this is now more like 3/8". But selection of reverse is silent so it is
obviously disengaging as it should.

... I didn't
recognize any signficant difference in the clutch pedal other than it seems
be disengaging pretty close to the floor now, a little low I believe for a
clutch kinda still somewhat new?
