Truck Shutters When Engaging clutch

Finding that my 92 Dodge W250 4x4 (non hub) will shutter when starting out. This is progressively getting worse, requiring a very gentle engagement of the clutch in second or starting out in first gear. My truck has a five speed with OD. This seems to get worse as I drive it during the day. Just wondering if it possibly has a rear engine seal leaking oil on to the clutch somehow, making it progressive.

Or maybe it has a problem with the transmission and or engine mounts. Or maybe the clutch is just due for replacement, although it still feels good and doesn't slip. The vehicle has 209,000 km, I purchased it at 137,000 from the BC Forest Service so i suspect it is still the original clutch.

Anyone elxe experienced this or suggestions on the proper fix. Thanks

Gowen

sounds like someone at bc forest liked to ride the clutch i would recommend you take a look throught the inspection hole and look for a burned clutch pad and or a polished spot on the clutch plate...

I had the same thing, it was a toasted clutch and a burnt flywheel.

Thanks for the replies guys. Can a burnt flywheel be reconditioned (machined) or should I be looking for a replacement?
