What about the ball bearing that goes into the clutch shaft rod that pushes on the pressure plate? It is very easy for it to fall out while changing the clutch and not realizing it. Another thing could be that the new clutch pak is slightly thicker than stock, this will make the throw of the clutch too far and will not engage the clutch

well heres a thing.. only parts i removed were the plates and pressure plate.. nothing else came apart. the shaft should still be intact.. whats throwing me is that there is alot of play in the actuator arm.. im going to put my stock clutch back in to see if thats doing something but im like lost on ideas..

There is an increased number of plates in your new clutch, or the plates are thicker, or both.

Better off with OEM and/or a conversion to an '06 clutch.

make sure that the thickness of the clutch plates (the metal ones, not the fiber ones.)are the same from stock. Use a micrometer, they will look the same but a difference in .005 will make a big difference. I just had the same problem and I had the wrong plates, they were .007mm thicker each. It made my clutch almost almost unadjustable. Once I went back to the stock thickness, all was good.

pretty much nailed it on the head.. the cause was two fold, increased number of plates as well as the steals were thicker.
