+1. If that were the case, then it would throw off the overall geometry for the amount of clutch throw. Maybe for kicks, crawl back under the car and adjust the clutch to much tighter than the specs call for - even though it may cause constant contact of the TOB with the PP. Then see if you get complete clutch release and can shift the gears. That should narrow things down a bit. And maybe your new PP is defective, not "unloading" the diaphragm evenly.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
