RE: [T3] Slip Slidin' Away

Most places like BAP apparently sell kits to fix the clutch which include
the clutch parts and even an alignment tool!  I replaced my 71 Square for
the murderous sum of $91 (including the rear seal).

	Ok Kids, here are some tuff questions.....  I have a 64 Notch w/ a
	(understatement) rear seal. I drip about a quart! a
	week.  I feel bad for the apartment mgmt! Anyway, When crusing
	town I can maintain regular speeds (Within Reason)
	but when I reach RPMs high enough to shift I seem to top out in
	ie: In second gear, I can get to 30mph but no more.
	The rpm goes higher but no more speed. But when I shift to third, I
	go faster even though the rpms are lower and so on.
	Makes sense? Also going up a hill, Not a mountain just a highway
rise in
	elevation, I lose power/speed but what I gain on
	decent, I can keep, as long as there isn't another hill right after
	that.  It also takes a while to get to 60/65 mph but I can do it. I
	suspect the oil leak has soaked the clutch/pressure plate etc. Is

	Particulars: 1500 dual carb, 6V, stock dist., stock trans, wheels

	Trans is bad for sure, It slips out of second and won't go into
first at
	a stand still, you have to be moving slightly to get first gear.

	Now I am waiting for $$$ to do the trans clutch seal etc., But I
	like your opinions on what is happening or what might be

	64 notch
