- You got a "rebuilt" pressure plate with very weak springs. (not so likely)
- Your flywheel only had the friction surface turned, or at least had it turned deeper than the pressure plate mounting surface. (much more likely)
In any case, it unfortunately sounds like you're going to be pulling it apart to fix this.

I have this older 84 GL SW 4x4. The Transmission went out so I decided to fix it the right way this time. Rebuild Transmission, New Pressure Plate, New Clutch, and the Flywheel got resurfaced (new bearings too). In the past I've always gone the cheap way and just bought a new clutch Plate with no real problems. However this time, I get it all back together, and my clutch will not stop slipping. It's so bad, I can start it in 1st gear and a turtle would beat me in a race. Made the adjustments on the cable with not much luck. I've spent a lot of money in that little car and the car is a beater, but I love it!!!! I'm getting depressed:confused: because I don't know what I did wrong. I can't seem to fix it and I don't want to take it a part again if not needed. Any suggestions out there? You think the flywheel was maybe resurfaced too well? Please Help!!!! Gas is too expensive not to drive my Sube. Thanks:)
