Either replace the flywheel or buy a new one. The input shaft splines must be cleaned and lubed and the clutch hub splines cleaned and lubed. After lubing wipe excess off with a paper towel as excess lube will be immediately deposited on the friction disk.

You can also buy a heavier duty clutch.

Trans must remain in neutral or the blocking rings stick.

Shifting is likely a combination of things including the fluid. Dexron-3 is only recommended for emergency use by the OEM. the manual used a proprietary lifetime fluid after the first and only change at 6000 miles.
I finally pulled the trigger and order an LUK set with tie rod ends and another ball joint.

Lets do it right and move on. I might sell my replacement brute on ebay if somebody wants it. I will update it if I can install it over the weekend.

Thank you for your help all.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
