Zf5 won't go into gear..

I have a 96 f350 with a zf5. It won't go into gear when truck is running but when it is off it goes into every gear. If its in gear and I have the clutch pushed down and start it it tries to go forward. Once it's in gear and running you can't get it out. I got my buddy to look at it when I push the clutch in and the slave cylinder goes all the way. The clutch master cylinder slave cylinder clutch flywheel throw out bearing and all that are brand new. The lines bled and has fluid in it. I don't know what to do now. Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks

It's not fully disengaging. I'd say it's either you have a bent clutch fork or your rod for your master cylinder is different length than your old one. I believe you can pull the rod out of your old master and install it into your new master.

This is def. a clutch disengagement problem, not the trans. Does the _fork_ move at least 1/2" when you operate the clutch pedal? Could be the fork is damaged, bent, not located properly, or the throwout bearing not in position.

What clutch kit (presumably the pressure plate is new as well?) and flywheel are installed?
