Title: Re: "Fluttering" Under Load

Re: "fluttering"...a bit like a hummingbird, but more muffled, and not quite as quick.

As for the 5th gear "clutch test," this seems counterintuitive.  I'd think a slipping clutch would announce itself while attempting to accelerate briskly from a lower gear.

While the clutch was replaced awhile back, the engine has never been opened and does slowly seep a bit of oil, including from the rear main seal.  I'll be dropping the engine later this fall, with plans to open it up to see what it might need - and my guess is that all will become clear at that point.
