Clutch problems?

Hey, I have what seems to be becoming a problem. My clutch linkage has always been adjusted out pretty far. Then, a few months ago, I noticed that shifting was becoming harder. I adjusted the linkage out more and it seemed to help. Now, shifting is definitely getting rough again. My clutch pedal doesn't have much play, and the clutch lets out at the top. My linkage is adjusted way out. What is wearing out? I've never worked on a clutch so I don't know much. Could it be worn springs or throwout bearing? By the way, it's a non-hydraulic clutch on a T5 and I checked the fluid already. Thanks for any help.

What fluid did you check if it's not a hyrdraulic clutch? I was thinking all '83's with T4/5 trannies had a hyrdraulic clutch. Hmmm.

Your clutch disk is worn to the point it will start to slip pretty soon. You will need to replace , I would by a kit with the pressure plate and to bearing and pilot bushing and be done with it. It will make world of diffference

I was referring to the tranny fluid/oil.

Yeah, I guess it really doesn't matter WHAT is wearing out in there anyway because I'll replacing it all at once. So everyone agrees that the clutch is just wearing out?
