Update again:
Pulled transmission again.
Everything looks perfect.
Flywheel isn't mounted crooked.
Bolts are all tight.
I swapped the clutch line before pulling the trans and it rebled no problem but still no disengagement.

Again, I can hear the slave start moving at the very top of the pedal, and I hear it travel back and forth very well, but, the dang clutch will not release.

I rotated the engine and kept checking the distance from the FW to a part of the block to see of maybe I had bent the crank's FW flange, but it seems straight.

I guess I could put it all back together AGAIN for the 4th time and try a 3rd master cylinder.
I'm going to change brands of slave cylinder since I'm back in here as well, incase this design just doesn't have quite perfect specs.

I guess I'll be buying a new FW too, since it's the only thing that isn't brand new.

No one has ever had this problem?
Help. Somebody.
This thing has been ready to drive for 8 months!
