Something else to consider here.... general rule of thumb is you need a 1/4" gap between the face of the throw out bearing and the fingers on the pressure plate with the clutch pedal at the rest position(up against the bump stop). If the linkage is not adjusted properly, that will cause the original posters problem as well.
