MG MGB Technical - Clutch problems

1275 midget, competition clutch with roller bearing.
Car had been running well for a couple of years with no clutch problems.
Week before last the slave cylinder gave up the ghost. Managed to drive home (30 miles) mostly motorway.
Changed slave for one the same as came out. Unable to get a pedal afterwards despite bleeding both ways. Noticed fluid in master cylinder was dirty so have changed that (cylinder)as well. Now have a good pedal BUT clutch does not fully disengage. Lots more bleeding with no air apparent (have extended bleed line). Slave pushrod has been hacked about at some stage and appears a bit longer than standard .
Any ideas why it does not fully disengage now?
