What the heck is wrong with this piece!

I just finished installing a new clutch and pressure plate on my 2wd 92 loyale. I ran the new clutch up to 25mph prior to finishing front end installation and saw no problems so I moved on and installed every thing else. When I was moving it out of the garage, again no problems until, clunk... the car stops moving.
It sounds like the clutch is sliding and the car isnt moving... In addition the noise stops when the pedal is fully depressed. The clutch cable is adjusted properly ( I think- no certain), but i think there is a bigger problem at hand?
My thought might be the release bearing, I replaced this with a new one and new clips, however when I installed it is seemed as if the clips were loose, but I proceeded anyways...
Finally, I'm hoping someone can tell me what may be wrong, I hope to god that I dont have to take this apart again, it was a nightmare the first time.
Thanks for your replies..

i've done 3 clutch installations, always with new clips, and they've never fit snug. whether the TOB and clips are old or new.
i'd suspect your clutch cable first. get a new one from the dealer; it's a little more than napa, but i've had a new napa clutch cable break so i don't choose to recommend their clutch cables. it's common for them to fail near the pedal, which wouldn't affect the adjustment you're inspecting under the hood anyway. you should see if the clutch fork moves when the pedal is used and go from there. the noise you hear could be the clutch pedal itself in the cabin.

In addition I think the cable is fine, Ive seen it disengage the clutch.
How can I check the cable?
Any other sugestions?

Once again the problem is that the clutch makes a grinding noise while in gear or in neutral with the pedal released... then the noise stops when the pedal is depressed. In addition the car will not move when in gear, although I havent really experimented with this in fear of tearing up that new clutch disc.

Did you check to make sure the splines on the new clutch fit good on the splines on the tranny? I think the 4WDs had a bigger spline. As long as the clutch fork isn't to tight and keeping the clutch from engaging it should still move in gear even if it had a broken clutch cable or bad throwout bearing.

Also try to let the clutch out with the E-brake fully applied. This will tell you if the hub is bad or even an axle. If you let the clutch out and it dies not a problem with either but, if you let the clutch out and it doesn't die then get out and see what is turning and what is not.
Make sure to have the emergency/parking brake fully applied. A helper wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I hate to say it but my check mark goes beside the wrong clutch disc.
Qman's stripped hub spline must be the first thing checked though.
