Sounds like you need to readjust it then. From the first post it wasn't clear you installed a new clutch. Unless you went wheeling in the mud or something not mentioned...

IIRC, you should adjust the acorn nut and locking nut until there is about 5mm of freeplay. If it is too tight, you may not be letting the clutch fully engage.

a new clutch will make noise at first until the machined surfaces wear a little smoother give a couple of days . It does need to be adjusted though if it is slipping.

There is also an adjustment under the dash above the pedal to adjust pedal freeplay. If that is too tight it won't let the clutch engage either. BTDT on a friends Cruiser. His truck wouldn't hold high gear heading up hill. Pulled off on the side of the highway and adjusted the whole clutch system so I could continue my journey...

Check a service manual on how to adjust the clutch.
