    Clutch adjustments must ONLY be done on a cold engine otherwise when they warm up, everything goes south as far as adjustments.

    Hmmm. That is about half as much as Glider!! :D

    When you pulled the side cover off the tranny, did you take out the snap ring so you could inspect the ball bearings? Any chance that something could have been in there interfering with them? On the other side, did you look at the diaphragm spring all the way around to make sure there was nothing interfering with it? Those are the two ends of the clutch engagement/disengagement mechanism. The stuff in between those is all solid bits!
