Default External slave clutch question?

I have a SBF with a Scattershield and and an external slave cylinder with a pusher rod. I took my properly operating thirty year old build car in for an engine swap and have had clutch problems ever since.

He's always done good work for me on everything from Benz's, BMW's, Nissan's, Dodge Cummins's, etc.

He took it on himself to try to redesign the wheel. Changed out the slave mount, springs, and clutch arm?

IMO, shouldn't the spring pulling back on the slave be stronger than the spring inside the slave? It appears to me that the throwout bearing is in contact with the clutch fingers?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Ahhhhh, the ol' "should the TOB touch the fingers" question. Here is a wonderful place to start: Throw out bearing free play on my ERA

There's absolutely nothing wrong with a throwout bearing lightly touching the pressure plate fingers. Keeps the hydraulic system as self adjusted.
Master cylinder adjustment determines freeplay at the pedal.
Slave cylinder will follow PP fingers as the clutch plate gets thinner.
All cars have this type of system these days.
