Unhappy help new clutch on my 97 cobra clutch pedal getting hard wont shift??

I had a question about my new ram hdx clutch I installed in my 97 cobra I took it out for a drive right after driving 5 miles the clutch pedal got really hard and wouldn't go down I had to get a tow it was just stuck at the top very hard I thought would be the plastic stock quadrant so I bought the maximum motorsports clutch quadrant and firewall adjuster and so took out for a drive again and after driving it for about 8 miles I get to a stop sign and it does the same thing very stiff clutch pedal that won't go down ? I got a tow and took it home and the next day the clutch pedal went back to normal but I don't want to drive it because I have a feeling it will do it again any ideas what might be my problem would shift fine into gears until I drove it for a while that's when the clutch pedal got really hard at the top and wouldn't Want to go down ?

I have 1997 Cobra with the same problem, I broke severals cables because it's to hard the pedal, i don't know what it's. I bought the F1 clutch stage 3 kit and quadrant, firewall and cable BBK and ford racing brands but without results, we need help why?!?!?
i take off the older stock presure plate because i was thinking that these are the reason but with my new F1 stage 3 kit it;s the same no change

The 2 pressure plate are damage?
The Cable size for cobras are too different?

Thanks for all your help!
