After looking at your picture and looking at my removed throwout bearing, I believe your throwout bearing is not installed correctly. The throwout bearing is installed from the driven plate side of the pressure plate and the pressure plate fingers are captured by the throwout bearing groove. When you push the clutch petal down the pressure plate fingers are pulled towards the transmission. In order to install it as shown, you would have to slide the throwout bearing on the transmission guide tube prior to mating up the transmission. Normally the throwout bearing is held in place by the pressure plate so when you mate up the transmission, the guide tube engages the throwout bearing as the transmission seats with the engine. The thing that threw me off was the fact that you said you were able to get the clutch to slip.
