Simple Reason Clutch Pedal will not Depress, after Clutch Job, Missing Pivot Arm

After 5 days on and off doing everything down to pilot bushing and doing it solo, put it all together and got in and the clutch pedal would not depress at all. Yikes. Did not want to do the whole job again.

Literally prayed to Jesus about it.

After considering all things pulled the slave out. Put it back in. Noticed that it wanted to push itself back out. Sure enough now it works fine, the rod missed the pivot arm niche.

This is the first thing I would check if after clutch job if the pedal is rock hard.
