Hello I'd say its possible the clutch has been fitted baack to front so the friction plate position is too high and so its in a state of constant slipeither that or the clutch parts are the incorrect specification and so they are too tall an installed height so the slave cylinder would be pre-loaded and opening the clutch slightlyI'd say the next step is to remove the gearbox
