Finished a clutch install, but throw out bearing not working?

I just finished the project of changing my stock clutch in my 2002 WRX. I stayed with stock exedy clutch for cost reasons.

problem I am having is I followed several sets of directions perfectly. started the car. and I can't put the car into gear. basically the clutch is not engaging (disengaging the drive-train).

Im sure I put the clutch disk in the correct way. and ive bleed the slave cylinder and that seems to be working perfect.

Is there something I have to do to set the Throw Out bearing to make sure it is working properly or engage it for the first time or something. I just can't figure out why this is not working?

Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's been a while, but there was something I had to reach in for and flip foreward, the fork I think? It's accessable still though. It only took a few seconds to get to.

you have to hear the click when you pull the fork forward, my guess is that you didnt get it all the way till it clicked in.

As vd55 said above, it could be your fork tabs are not located properly, if u remove the rubber dust seal around your fork it is possible to shine a torch in and inspect that your fork is correctly located. if so check your slave cylinder is lined up to your fork (it is possible to get this wrong) also your release bearing may have come away from the clutch cover. Not likely but still a possibility. Maybe a production error in the new clutch.
