    Looking for same answer. 1990 Mighty Max, cable operated, replaced pressure plate and disc, throw out bearing, cable, drain and replaced oil. Net result? Still no pressure on clutch arm. Nothing appears damaged, and everything appears to be put in correctly and pressure disc is torqued to specs (12-14 ft/lbs). Maybe someone can throw us both a bone with a good guess.

    the cable sounds like the issue. the way it is mounted to the firewall or pedal assembly. the other end is at the trans or bell housing. make sure it is secured and not floating. it has to be stationary in order to move the arm on the throw out bearing. the adjustment is key as well but i doubt it is that.
    let me know how it is mounted
