Just a shot in the dark, but I recently had a similar problem where I would have to press the pedal really hard to the floor to get the clutch to disengage. It turned out that the pin that connects the clutch pedal to the plunger shaft of the hydraulic cylinder had worn a slot in the clutch pedal. This caused the pedal to be lower to the floor and not have enough travel to disengage the clutch I relpaced the pedal and the shaft to cure the problem. I would at least check for this before before tearing apart the clutch assembly. Joe G.
