TO Bearing Replaced - Grinding

Hi all. I searched for a while to find a solution, but nothing answers my questions, so here goes.

My TO Bearing was clearly toast (based on the noise it was making when the clutch was depressed), and I decided to do the job myself. All proceeded well (with the exception of the pilot bearing removal... finally decided that even though one came in the kit I bought, the one that was installed is in good enough shape to leave), and the jeep is now back together. Here's the problem:

On the first test drive after the job, there is some obvious play in the clutch, and if I feather the clutch, there is a point where something feels (via the foot pedal) like it's clunking around or grinding. These were the instructions I followed:
and they seemed like good ones. What am I missing? [Please, oh please tell me that I didn't forget something inside the bell casing!!!] Any ideas what would cause this noise/feeling? It's not normal.

From this page : It seems that when my T/O bearing blew, it took out the sleave also. I didn't realize it because there was nothing resembling a broken sleave left inside the case. I do remember that when I replaced the TO bearing I was surprised to see that it slipped onto the shaft with a lot of clearance. I'm pretty sure that's my issue.

I'll post back when I'm positive.
