Clutch troubles in 240SX

Hello, I have an interesting problem...

I drive a Nissan 240SX SE model, 1992. I recently failed inspection for a bunch of things (exaust & calipers). I know a trustworth mechanic to take my car to and so there I go. I knew I needed a new clutch, so I did all three in one big go. Excellent, right? So after I get the car back, I drive it around and then I begin to notice that the clutch was slipping. It didn't slip when I first started to drive the car - only after I had driven it for a while. I tested it out for a few days and the results were the same. I returned it to my mechanic and he replaced the clutch again. Says it was a faulty pressure plate.

Two days later, the brand-new clutch is slipping, in the same way. After I drive for a while, the clutch slips. I have since consulted with my mechanic and everything looks good: new master and slave cylinders, the fork assembly is operating fine, the system is bled. If anyone can help me figure this out, I'd greatly apprecite it.

Is the Mechanic aligning the new clutch properly when he replaces it?
