Default Clutch travels too far in

Hi all,
What a great forum. I'm just gonna dive in. Biking over the weekend the clutch seemed to not disengage. I re-adjusted the clutch cable, pushing in the arm and pulling cable slack out. Looks like the clutch arm is too far in before any clutch lever action. When clutch is pulled there still seems to be a bit of friction but I'm afraid to adjust any farther as the clutch arm may hit the other side.

I've taken apart the clutch cover, there is a ball and rod. The parts don't look too worn down.

What can I do to bring the clutch arm action back to normal working position? Is there any adjustments I can make? Is there anything in the clutch cover that can throw off the arm position?

Picture1 shows how far it sits. Picture2 shows when pulling on clutch lever.
