Default ford 800 clutch

I am replacing the clutch in my 1958 ford 800. I got a kit ( clutch plate ,pressure plate. throwout bearing, piolet bearing) from yesterdays tractor. I had the flywheel refaced and installed the clutch. everything seemed to go together fine but it looked like the clutch plate was not disengaging(grinding when going into gear). Took it apart ang it looked like the rivets on the hub of the clutch plate were rubbing on the edge of the flywheel so I had the flywheel cut. Put it back togeather and am still having the same problem. Took it apart and can't see anything wrong. any ideas??

Sounds like to me you're not totally disengaging the clutch. How much play do you have in the clutch pedal. You should only have an inch or 2 of movement before the throw out bearing meets the pressure plate.
