Adjusting Clutch Release Rod

I got the clutch equalizer all cleaned up with some new parts. I cleaned up the clutch release rod even though I purchased a new one from LMC. It was amazing to see the difference between the original and new. The stock rod was so much heavier and thicker. Why put in some some cheap China crap.

So since I have this all setup now- I tightened the clutch rod against the clutch fork making it a little tight. I got in the Bronco and pressed down on the clutch pedal and it had a firm and smooth feel.

The Question: How do I know how much to adjust the clutch rod to the clutch fork? Do I just tighten it up like I did and that's it? Since I have a new clutch and engine I'm not sure what is the correct way to do this....Thanks!
