Clutch Engage Point Adjustment

Have a Tithonus truck and trying to adjust the clutch pedal throw, would like it to engage closer to the floor as the engage point is pretty far up when releasing. Took off the master cylinder cover and trying to adjust it. There are nuts on either side of the pedal connection, which way should it be moved? Towards or away from the cylinder? Im thinking that the rod should be made longer, there for moving it away, but when I tried searching it came up with conflicting info and no real answer.
Thanks

There is no adjustment for engagement point. The master should be adjusted for the correct free play and pedal height. Download and read the workshop manual. It is clearly explained there. If you add in a bunch of extra freeplay to get a lower engagement point, things end up too lose and something can come apart.

Has never slipped and has strong engage point, its just higher in the pedal throw than I would like/I am used to. Guess its just something Ill have to get used to.

Make sure there's some play in the pedal. ..see work shop manual
Also in 5th gear if you rest your foot on the pedal while at speed and if disengages or slips it's a strong sign of a worn friction plate. I just went though this with my 130

Hydraulic system takes up wear naturally. When the release/pick up point runs out of travel it's time for a new clutch.
