Default difficult first and no reverse on new clutch

I had a new clutch installed from a general mechanic. I know that's probably my first problem. It's really hard to get my 04 STi to go into 1st gear. After I get going all the other gears are fine. Reverse is impossible unless I turn off the car and put it in reverse and start it up like that. So, when the clutch first went in the car wouldn't go into gear while the engine was running no matter what. The mechanic found out that the slave cylinder was cracked and had a burr in it keeping the piston from going all the way and completely disengaging the clutch. That was replaced, bled, and it goes into gear now but first is a very difficult and revese just won't happen. The pedal feels great, comes all the way off the floor and engages a little above the middle towards the top. Pedal pressure is constant too. the master cylinder is staying full. Any ideas? Everything was fine before this new clutch, except my old clutch was way worn out. The new clutch is an exedy organic OE replacement. I've been reading about the pedal adjustment...I'm not sure if that will help. Maybe if I adjust it to act like the pedal is being pushed in further it will completely disengage the clutch???? I dunno, it's quite frustrating.

your clutch isn't fully disengaging, i believe you probably still have air in your clutch hydraulics, how does the pedal feel?

Pedal feels firm and functions exactly like the stock pedal, it requires a little more effort to push down though. It returns from the floor nicely and maintains pressure while pushing down.

then next i'd try adjusting the pushrod, if that doesn't work it's time to take the car back because there's something not quite right

If it's not the hydraulics then something is wrong with the clutch itself, definitely take it back before you screw up your transmission. If this "general" shop can't fix it properly take it to a Subaru shop and make the first shop pay the bill.

Thanks for the tips, I'll keep ya posted. It's almost as if the new disc is too thick to fully disengage....weird.
