'02 Amigos,
I'm having the feeling that something *bad* is about to break on the BOS ('76 2002). I've been experiencing the following weird noises, behaviour, and I don't have a clue what to look at/for.

During accelleration (heavy as usual!) if I put the clutch in rapidly, there is a *thump*. I can't tell where it's coming from. It also feels like maybe at some time the clutch isn't going to dis-engage (that's just a feeling). There isn't any slippage with getting the power to the street, however, it seems a little rougher than usual getting going from a stop.

Any ideas what to be looking for before it gets expensive? TIA!
