Hmm, 20% off the floor sounds like engagement is late for a new clutch, considering .... Yet your thought was your slave cylinder is pushing the fork (and throw-out bearing) out too far?

I'd say if you have metal grindy noise from the bell housing, something is definitely installed wrong or defective and probably won't repair itself, but post back if it goes away or you find out what it was.
