clutch pedal not returning to engaged position

i just installed a new motor in my chevy pickup which has a 4 speed standard shift transmission ..with the new motor i also installed a brand new oem flywheel and a dual friction centerforce clutch (which is designed to install on a stock flywheel application). i just started the motor last night for the first time .. when the old motor was in the truck the clutch pedal returned properly. however now when i press the clutch in . the pedal comes back up about two inches and just stays there . the resivroir is empty so im assuming it just has air in the line but wanted a second opinion. . thanks ,garland

Well, the obvious thing to do would be to refill the reservoir, bleed the system, and try again.

X2, I would think the clutch isn't fully disengaging either, only releasing as far as it's returning.
