Thanks for the advice. I will also need to pay the labor as I'm not set up to get under there or lift it. Probably a few hours I imagine.I've got to agree with Woodchuck's diagnosis of a dragging input shaft, usually caused by the bellhousing opening not
absolutely perfectly (within .005) concentric with the input bushing in the crank. Google the procedure for this and
although it's tedious, it'll only cost you a couple of offset dowels, to get the bellhousing concentric. Also need to check
for unparallel surfaces, ie, the back of the bell to the back of the block.
I wouldn't go any further without doing this first. A dragging input shaft acts like the clutch
is always engaged.
