David, It sounds like one of two things could be happening. First, is the drive disk on the crankshaft going on all the way (about a 1/4 inch of difference between the end of the crank and face of the drive disk is normal)? I've had an instance in the past where there was part of a broken clutch facing getting out of the pulley groove behind the drive disk which caused a similar problem to yours.
Secondly, it soulds like your clutch operating sleeve isn't moving into position properly. Could it be that one of the toggles slipped out of socket during the bearing change operation? How about the clutch drive pin in the operating sleeve? These are all points that could potentially bind causing the symptoms you describe.
One thing on these clutches is that the geometry all must be together...one thing out of whack will prevent any effective adjustment.
My thoughts as simple as it may sound, would be to grab the parts catalog and go over all the clutch parts and doulbe check the proper order...we've all had similar things happen over the years.
