Tighten the adjustment up some more!!? If that doesn't do it... put the car against a curb... do a "burn-in"... this is common with many replacement clutches today.....? material is just slightly too thick!

I just installed a new Kevlar clutch in my 1962 Spyder Coupe.  All seemed to
go well with the installation of the clutch and putting the drivetrain back
in the car, at least until I started the engine and tried  putting the car
in gear (while the car was still on stands).  While I can get it into 1st,
2nd and 3rd gear, it does not feel smooth, as it was before installing the
new clutch.  Worse yet, if I try to put it into 4th gear or reverse, it just
grinds, as if I was not stepping on the clutch at all.  Double pumping, etc.
has no effect on this problem.
