I appreciate your input. Thanks. Any and all help might answer this for us. It might help someone in the future and save some headachs for the next guy or gal. Keep the ideas coming. As for the theory, I'm really leaning toward a ring problem in spite of the fact that the motor seemed to have good compression. I know it does now. If I'm not rolling fast enough when I pop the clutch the compression will bring me to an instant stop. But, it did that with the Opti too.
