These clutch's are as simple as you can get.
1) Clutch needs adjustment.. which you said you did. But did you do it correctly?
2) Clutch pads are glazed or worn. Clean/replace pads.
3) Clean pressure plate has oil/grease in it, clean plate (from bearing or dripping gas.
4) Clutch shaft woodruff key is sheared. One on each end of shaft.
5) Small crankshaft gear (right side) key sheared.
