    The only thing in the pictures that looks off to me is the pressure plate 'fingers'. Maybe someone else will chime in on this but they look too deep within the pressure plate.

    If that's the case, I wonder if the pressure plate is bad, or if something is jammed all kittywampus in there...

    Is the clutch disc in backwards?

    I really don't think so.

    You don't have enough travel left for the fork. You need a longer pivot ball for the fork or an adjustable one. The fork should be just about touching the back of the opening in the bellhousing. Or you need a thicker throw out bearing. Maybe the fork isn't the correct one either.

    So with the fork at the rear of its opening, the throwout bearing should be touching or near touching the pressure plate fingers?

    It usually works best to set it up so the fork puts itself at the back of the slot when the cable is off then use the cable to dial in just a little bit of preload
