Question Hey Y'all New here and need help

Hope someone reads this. Never used a forum like this before. Hope I'm doin this right. I joined because I need to talk with someone smarter than me about a problem I'm havin with my YJ.

I have a 91 yj 4 cyl 5 spd. previous owner replaced clutch plate, pressure plate, master and slave just before selling it. Cutch was slipping when I purchased it. He said it worked fine right after having it repllaced but started slipping after a few short trips. I pulled the parts out to inspect them. All looked ok except the flywheel had a little ware and had a glaze. I had the flywheel trued and put all back together and all seemed ok at first. it felt like a new vehicle. Pulled strong. No slipping at all. again after a few short drives all of a sudden within a mile it began to slip more and more to the point it felt like it was in neutral, would not even nudge the vehicle.
What could the problem be. Its such a simple mechanisim I cant understand what could be causing this. HELP!

few things could be going on.. one, check the pressue of the clutch (ie bleed it again) make sure its not leaking at all because you could just be loosing small amounts of fluid causing the pressure to slowly die off leading to one big fall out.. its free and easy to do .

also wanted to mention that you need to be very very easy on a new clutch / flywheel when installig it needs time to break in properly
