drive train slippage,Help please
I am experiencing what feels like a loose chain slipping on worn sprockets.
I see no damage on the belt and tension is good. I can tighten the belt and it gets better but starts to squeak or squeal very loud.
It slips after 1/2 throttle or more in 1st gear but starting to do it in 2nd when 2 up. I've looked at trans drawings to find something that might wear.
Oh , It has 36,000+ miles and gets reg. oil & filter changes every 3-4k with full synthetic oil. never had any other problems.

this is more like a clunking type slippage not like a smooth rise in rpm of typical clutch slippage.
planning on pulling the R-side cover anyway. may put new clutch disc in while I'm there.
