    I concur with the above. I set my idle just to the + side of 1000. This provides adequate oil pressure/flow at idle. The next logical step is checking the float levels.

    My best guess is your clutch disc is toast. A leaking slave cylinder for the hydraulic operated clutch is suspect. These slave cylinders have been a source of clutch failure. Another contributing...
