Was the clutch disc put in backwards? It also may be a release bearing not installed correctly. See pic.

You should only put a small amount of grease on the input shaft where it goes into pilot bearing/bushing. Check for a bent release arm as that happens as well as bad bushings on shaft in trans. Also check where bolt goes through the shaft that its not worn or broken there

Unless it is air in system I can't see it so can be of no further help except give you bleed procedure for slave as that may be problem. When master was replaced it should have been bench bled prior to install. Lines should not be twisted either.
