    Got the new parts and reinstalled. Still not working, with the pedal fully depressed the clutch fork only moves 1/2". Between the pedal assemble twisting, body flex, cable flex, etc. there is not enough movement to depress/release clutch. I'm giving up on the cable and going to hydraulic.

    Don't blame you. I would have done it before this many attempts.

    Yeah, hydraulic is the way to go in my book. My only advice on that subject is to stay away from the aftermarket pull style slaves. I have been using them for a while and I burn through them about once a year, they eat their own O-rings. It is easy to replace the O-rings but why bother when there are plenty of factory slaves that work great and are typically cheaper. I am swapping to a factory hydraulic bell housing and slave next time the motor is out.

    Have you compared the throwout bearing carrier? Same one or changed out? I have seen different length ones that can cause issues like you are having.
    If you do end up going hydraulic, I would stay away from the hydraulic throwout bearings. I hate these things! You have to pull the transmission to fix the leaking TO setup.
    I have had good luck using Toyota slave cylinders (push style) from 1980's models.
