Question Clutch Problems

I have just replaced the clutch slave cylinder in my '84 318i. It works and the bleeding process seems to have left no air in my lines. But I can't shake the feeling that there is very little feeling to my clutch pedal. Is there a way to add more pressure to the system? Or is that a result of a new cylinder? Any help and guidance is quite welcome.

thank you

So you cannot feel the clutch biting area from the pedal?
If the clutch-plate is new and there are no issues with the thrust bearing/actuating lever then there must still be air in the system. Just a thought my friend...

Eso es todo!
