Any chance you installed the clutch disc backwards?

i did adjust the clutch cable. and i did put the disk in the right way. i pulled the transmission again and i found my pilot bearing had pretty much exploded. could that cause the problem? if not the only other thing i could think of is something is wrong with my trans itself.

eliminated:
clutch
finger plate
flywheel
throw out bearing
clutch cable
