Default Slipping clutch

ok, heres something new for you....10k on new clutch and flywheel and......on 5th gear uphill, it starts to disengage at 3/4 gas pedal depress...WTF???

Come to think of it, pretty much on 5th gear on flat plateau , gas pedal depressed all the way, it starts to slip....

Heres a catch, I bought a 2nd stage just because I have red horror stories about other aftermarket clutches. So this one is made to hold better....NOT...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well, something's wrong for a clutch to slip. The other possibility besides a worn out pressure plate would be hydraulics misadjusted or not releasing completely. Main shaft oil seal leak onto the clutch?

How old is your transmission? Did you inspect it for front seal leaks? Was the bell housing and the old clutch covered with a brown rust-like goo?

That auction brings up a Stage 1 clutch witch is basically a early stock style clutch with a slightly heavier cover clamp force. Should not slip in 5th though.

If trans is original to the car, numbers match, then a front seal leak is a very high possibility and it will drip directly on the friction disk.

I'm no expert, but my instinct would be to crouch down and look under the car at the bottom of the bell housing area, to see if oil (from a failing main seal) is apparent.

I'm thinking, if one can see fresh oil on bottom of engine / housing, it's very likely the seal is bad. Just my $.02
