you mean (in hand) the Clutch Shoe is rubbing on the Liner,, if the engine is not running it really shouldn't do this unless there is a High Spot on the liner or a Burr on the Shoe,, check the Liner for a High Spot,,

is it hard to install or remove the Shoe from the Bell ?? the Shoe should just slid into the Bell without rubbing on the liner,,

but once all together and the engine has been started you may have a little Clutch Drag at idle..

I would think that once the engine is running at idle speed, that any high spots would wear down. If there is still any excessive drag after the initial startup, there is a problem with the liner or cluth bell.

I had the same problem - but my highspots REALLY grabbed.
Clutch shoe did not even slide in. I ended up scrapping off the Liner (which was new) and re-installed a new liner. No biggi - Now perfect.

Get the clutch liner machined out(Lathe machine)ample enough to even out the high spots, it will also balance out the entire clutch assembly to minimize vibration.
