Did you pull the clutch off? Is the pressure plate lined up? How about the pilot bearing/bushing, is it new/right one? Try pulling it back out a bit, put it in gear and turn the output shaft while pushing it in. Those coarse splines are sometimes a bitch to line up. Also, did you clean the alignment dowels/holes? I use lots of never sieze on them on installation.

sounds like you are only slid in to the throw out bearing and you are still needto line up the splines of the shaft . try putting the tranny in gear and trun the end shaft and push the trans at the same time. I have done hundreds of clutches and it works every time.
