weird clutch issue

I was driving down the road, engaged the clutch, put it in neutral, then I couldn't get to go into gear? Pulled over thought my clutch fork fix had gone bad, but as I drove it like I was told I could do clutchless(thanks for that advice by the way) it seemedmo to get better and worse. At some points it seemed to be working fine. Other times no clutch at all.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the fork is broken or bent(weak).

Did you check all of the clutch lines for leakage? it could be the slave or master cylinder or a leak in the line or fitting. When you did the build did you install new ones or use something old?

The master is like 2 years old now, the slave is brand new.

I don't know but if it were me I would try to bleed the system and see how well that goes. If you find that the system is acting funny then I would replace the slave cylinder, even though it was new, because that is the easiest thing to replace. If no joy is found then replace the master cylinder. I would keep checking for leaks but assume that you would have noticed something by now. After replacing those the next is the clutch fork. When you did the rebuild did you do a new clutch, fork and bearing?
