91 GT

I have a 91 GT 5.0 that I just installed a new clutch assembly in. It has a new disk,pressure plate,pilot bearing,clutch fork,and throw out bearing. It is hard to get it into gear when at a complete stop but seems to shift fine when in motion. There is about an 1/8 in. gap between the TOB and PP should the TOB ride against the PP at all times? It's like the clutch is not engaging fully when I press the pedal. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated Thank you.

You will have adjust the cable. There is to much slack if its hard to go into gear.

If you have a stock clutch quadrant then yank UP on the clutch pedal. You'll hear a "bzzzzzrrrrpppp" (yes that is the sound lol) noise which is the stock adjusting mechanism.

But to answer your question yes the TOB is designed to ride on the fingers at all times.

My car has a Steeda double fork quadrant and a firewall adjuster. I adjusted the cable at the firewall and it seemed to help the shifting it goes into gear much easier now. Thanks for the info

Don't just adjust it haphazardly either, the PROPER way to adjust it is actually with the car running on ramps (and chocked/e braked with a person in the car with their foot on the brake). You adjust it or have a 3rd person adjust the firewall adjuster just until the TOB starts to spin. Then maybe 1 more click tight and that's it. You want just enough pressure so the fingers aren't slipping on the TOB. Tighter and it'll prematurely wear out the TOB, if its not contacting then you'll wear out the fingers and the TOB early and get a burning clutch smell. That's one reason I trashed the freeplay kit I made, TOB is actually supossed to be touching at all times.
