Make sure you didnt forget the little ball in the actuation rod. Something didnt go back together right. take a little time and take it back down, and make sure you didnt miss something.

Did you re-adjust the lever free play? If not, you need to due to the thicker clutch components.

turns out I did end the plate stack with the smallest inside diameter plate and the pressure plate wasn't sitting on the stack. thanks for the help. I did notice though that the clutch pull is much less now. Use a Barnett clutch kit. not sure what I had before, has anyone noticed that the Barnett clutch springs are soft?
