I didnt believe them, figured it was clutch spring, or adjustment behind the derby cover so I took their advice and loosened it a little. Issue seemed to have stopped. I ran it for an hour on a backroad for over an hour back and forth and couldnt get it to mimic the issue. For S&Gs I tighten my clutch as tight as it could go, and it did the slipping in every year as soon as I would hit the gas. They said start as tight as it can be and then slowly work youre way to loose. I trusted the old guys and they were right.

Glad you listened to someone and got it resolved.
