Did you make sure everything was tightened correctly and evenly?  Any possibility of grease or oil getting on the disk or pressure plate? Make sure your transmission and engine mounts are tight and in good shape. And be sure the clutch linkage is not bent or out of alignment. And did  you replace the throwout bearing?

the universal joints are the ball and trunnion type 

seemed to turn freely no binding or play

i have read the stories with these type of u joints so i dont ant to take it apart yet

one problem at a time

i think it may be the linkages or a mistake on the assembly
