Cab Vibration...HELP

Ok I have a 1995 F-250 7.3 PSD with a zf5 manual tranny and 253,xxx on the clock. My clutch just went out and I put a South Bend with an SMF in it. Just me and a couple buddies in my garage. Well we got it all done, relatively easy. No problems. While we were down there we replaced the clutch master and slave cylinders also. But when we went to test drive it, it was vibrating in the cab REALLY bad. Even if its stationary, I'll rev it up and it shakes like crazy including the steering wheel. Whether the clutch is engaged or not. But the clutch itself performs flawlessly, no evidence of doin anything wrong besides the godawful vibration. Every bolt was torqued down to spec and we used the alignment tool and all that. I've been drivin it for almost a week and it hasn't gone away! In fact it's gettin worse! Anyone have any ideas??? Thanks in advance!
Btw I'm new to the org, so please bare with me and thanks again for any help!

Almost sounds like the flywheel/clutch assembly is out-of-balance. I don't know how you would determine that without removing it and having it checked. Cheers!

Pilot bearing? Did the kit come with a conventional bearing for the pilot bearing, or one of those newfangled kevlar bushings?
