Default fast help. low clutch pedal

So I put back together my new clutch, t5 and everything else. Im having issues with my clutch. It seems like the pedal is low so its difficult to shift gears. It has cable clutch so I adjusted it to the max and it still needs more. I don't know what's going wrong. I'm lost and don't know how to go about this. Need some help. Any ideas or help guys?

Who's clutch conversion is it?

BTW, I prefer the stock linkage when using the T5. Easy to install, easy to adjust.

so i tried it again this morning and it is super hard to get into gears. Also, when i press the clutch, put in first and give it gas(with the clutch still in) it starts to pull forward. very little but still thats not right. and the more i accelerate the more it pulls forward.

OK, we understand your clutch linkage won't disengage fully. What cable kit is it? How about an under-dash photo of the pedal setup?

A bad release bearing would rumble, but you'd still be able to operate the clutch. something else is going on here. As far as I can tell, the pedal end is OK.

Better fix that parking brake.
