Clutch on the floor!

I'm hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. This was my late brother's car (77' 930) that I got. The clutch pedal is to the floor.

Here's what I do know.
1. The return spring (not the horeshoe one) and lever & C clip are not on the car. Would this cause the pedal to be on the floor? Or do I need to look at the pedal cluster?

TIA

If I'm reading it right, you need all the missing parts.

Any pics?

By design, i beleive, the pedal is tensioned where it will go to the floor when the clutch cable is disconnected.

I had a similar issue after removal the engine and trans, and then reinstalled them.
When putting everything back together and properly adjusting the clutch cable, the pedal was still on the floor. I lifted it up, and let it go and it would snap to the floor.
The first thing you have to do is replace the arm and helper spring. Once those are back on (in the right position), prop up the pedal, reattch the cable and adjust. Once everything is back on, the pedal will stay up.

+1 on what Jcc said.

The ultimate return spring for the clutch pedal is your pressure plate. The horseshoe (omega spring in Porsche jargan) is for assistance when pushing down the clutch. The little tension spring between the case and the swinging arm (on the bottom of the trans) is to hold tension against the throw out bearing.

Now it sounds like either you have a disconnected clutch cable or a snapped clutch cable.
