2003 Mach 1 clutch issues!

Hello all, I am back with a new toy. 2003 Mach 1, 141k miles, 5 speed, I picked it up for a good deal TOB was going out so I decided to put another clutch in. I put in a new Ford clutch, FRPP flywheel, Ford pilot bearing, release bearing, pivot stud, clutch fork, clutch cable, MM firewall adjuster & quadrant. This will be my 5th clutch install so I am pretty confident I put everything in right.

Problem: When I depress or release the clutch, I get what sounds like the clutch disc making light contact. It would not go into gear easily until I installed the MM firewall adjuster and quadrant. I adjusted it after installing those new parts and it will go into gear easily now, but the noise is still there. I am at a stumbling point, I have tried adjusting the firewall adjuster all around and the noise will not go away. I have a video that you can hear it, sorry it is sideways. Thanks!
