Clutch will not engage

I just recently bought a 93 jeep wrangler with a blown motor 4.0 and a 95 jeep chreokee with a bad transmisson for $1500. I picked up a running 4.0 out of a 95 jeep cherokee for $150. Bought a new clutch kit and installed, went to bolt the transmission to the motor and found out the shaft on the trasmisson would bottom out inside the crank with a 1/4 inch left between the motor and trans. We ended up cutting a 1/4 off the trans. shaft and bolted it up and dropped in. We bleed the clutch, but it will not go into gear. When you step on the pedal it is like you are pushing the brake, hard. Does anyone have any ideas
Thanks

If the pedal is that hard, I would say the pressure plate is not allowing the slave cylinder to depress the fingers on the pressure plate. Something is misaligned, or binding up.

As to what it could be, I have no idea. But I'll bet that by the time you figure it out & fix it, you'll be able to whip a tranny in & out faster than most folks. It looks like you have some more intimate time with the underside of your Jeep this weekend....

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

as of last night i have put the transmission back in it for the 3rd time in 2weeks. the first time after we bleed the clutch, it blew a o-ring out of the throw-out bearing, pulled it back off and replaced, blew the o-ring out. Warrantee replaced the bearing put it back in.
