A few things seem odd. First I wouldn’t think it would even be possible to get .097 air gap. Was there any friction material even left?

To address you current issue you needed to have the pressure plate resurfaced so that it is flat like the new floater and disks. Springs could also be fatigued and need replaced. The easy decision wpuld be to send it to comet to be rebuilt next time. Stall speed will always need adjusted after a clutch rebuild. The decrease in air gap will lower your clutch rpm significantly, just spring tension decreased as air gap opens up from wear.
