clutch engagement / hard to shift

I recently had my clutch replaced on my 05 WRX wagon. As I drove it home I noticed that with the clutch pedal to the floor in 1st (stopped) it starts grabbing and slowly pulling the car forward. I figured that it was due to the friction plate being new and thick. 400 mile into it the problem still exists. Also my car is hard to get into gear when it is stopped or moving, I figured it's because the clutch is partially engaged but also had that prob with stock clutch too. (hard to get into gear) My question is: Can I adjust my clutch pedal to solve the engagement problem and also I have new shifter bushing on order with a short throw shifter. Should that resolve hard shifting issues? Sorry if I'm kicking a dead horse here but I've researched for hours and found bits and pieces but nothing spot on.

Probably just need to adjust the pedal or bleed/adjust the clutch master cylinder. Sounds like even though you have plenty of input from the pedal, the cylinder isn't pushing the fork enough to disengage the clutch.

I did bleed it last night 4X and did see bubbles come through the clear hose I attached to the valve, although I bled it with the slave still attached to the trans. I'll try adjusting the pedal. Thank you.

Adjusted the clutch lever 1.5 turns and wow, problem solved. No engagement with pedal to the floor and easier shifts. Thanks.

Good deal. Always nice when it's something simple like that.

Anyone see where I would do that?
