    Did you remember to install the clutch fork, the throw out bearing? Are they all lined up correctly? Is the bleeder screw on the clutch release cylinder on the high side, if not air may still be trapped. You may have to raise the front or rear of car to get the air to move to the bleeders location.

    clutch systems are always hard to bleed...you will have to use your hand to move the clutch pedal up and down for a few minutes...and constantly check the clutch fluid reservior...bubbles = progress
