Do you have around an inch or less of freeplay on the clutch? too much free play ill not let the clutch fully disengage, causing gears to grind.

There is more than an inch
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 9 months ago

Can you answer my question about the oil
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 9 months ago

The oil pressure should not affect the clutch engagement.

Could it be in the clutch release mechanism?my shop manual says clutch is fitted with a heavy duty release bearing and should not need routine replacement.Theres little if any adjustment left on the clutch cable been that way since new clutch was put in
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 9 months ago

The more travel on the throwout bearing, the better the clutch releases. You may need a new cable!
