Angry Clutch not working

I have a 91 camaro RS 3.1 V6 with a 5 speed manual. I just went through the process of replacing my clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. After reassembling I tested it and my clutch will not disengage. I then took everything apart and confirmed that I had the throwout bearing installed correctly, and that the clutch master and slave cylinder are working. After assembling I then tried it again with the same results. I am stumped as to why the clutch will not disengage. Has anyone else had this problem? Please help.

I replied to this in the tranny section. Try to post in one section, it makes things easier.

Re: Clutch not working

Problem found. The replacement clutch plate is just slightly different then the original. The clutch plate side that goes to the flywheel of the original is flush, while the new one slightly sticks out. When I returned it to the parts store they double checked everything, and we found that whoever packaged the clutch kit included the wrong clutch plate. They replaced the kit with the right parts and now everything is working correcly.
