Transmission problem
2003 Subaru Baja 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 88000 miles

I just recently replaced my clutch disk, release bearing, and got my Fly wheel resurfaced. However, now the hydraulics that operate the release fork do not activate far enough. I can adjust it so that it will release the clutch disc when the pedal is all the way in, but when the pedal comes out, the release bearing is still riding on the pressure plate. It does not ride hard enough to cause slippage and I can reach in and press the slave cylinder in more and the release bearing will come off the pressure plate. However when I do this the level of hydraulic fluid in the cup rises. I have bled the clutch upwards of 30 times and I can't figure out why it is not engaging far enough. Any ideas would help.

Do you

Yes it was. Everything was replaced with stock parts but not it isn't working as it used to. I'm not sure what could have changed so much.
