Exclamation Replaced clutch-bled system and still nothing

Hey everyOne, some might remember that I replaced my clutch recently and was getting no pedal pressure.

So here's the deal- I now have replaced the clutch, pressure plate, concentric slave cylinder, master cylinder and also replaced the clutch pedal connection.

I was suggested to vacuum bleed the system because I wasn't getting any pressure through gravity bleeding. So I went and bought a vacuum pump and bled the system with a friend of mine.

I am still getting no pedal pressure and the concentric slave cylinder/throw out bearing doesn't move at all.

I am still pretty sure everything was installed correctly...

My questions are:

Is it possible there is air still in the hydraulic line? Would that be the only reason this concentric slave cylinder/throw out bearing won't move at all?

Or what else could I check?

I'm thinking of forcing the fluid down the reservoir and using the vacuum pump at the same time to ensure no air, since I vacuum bled his thing and my pedal is still squishy with zero throw out movement and absolutely no ability to shift. What do you guys think? I'm hoping I don't have to take this thing apart again.

What could be wrong?
